Thanks for noticing and reporting this bug. I released a new version which I 
hope should fix it (a full refresh in the browser may be needed to bypass an 
older cached version).

Yes, I like very much the tables of content in Wikipedia: very simple and with 
extremely small need of maintenance. The paragraph(s) before the first heading 
are considered an introduction or a summary of the article; the TOC is the 
plan of the article and after it, the main sections of the article. Articles 
with less than 3 sections (headings) don't have a TOC automatically.
