I think that's doable, but my first thought was the auto generated TOC wouldn't
allow for alternatives to be easily shown without doing some type of table. I
guess we could do something like:

 - autogen TOC (The Menu Entries)

 - Summary (Table)

 - Each Entry Discussion

The only drawback I see to the wiki is the wiki syntax. It's not that difficult,
I agree, but it can be an impediment. We would also need to keep in mind, and
limit, the topic headings to the menu entries and make the topic/subtopic order
reflect the menu layout.

Do we want to do a 'divide-and-conquer'? Have one person on the list originally
volunteer to build one of the toplevel and submenu layout in the wiki? I'll take
one. We can start with Kate's proposed toplevel and go from there:

Desktop Publishing
Edutainment & Health
Lost & Found

Why don't you get the names of other volunteers and assign a name to each entry
(me included) and we'll get going. For those (like me) who are not immediately
familiar with the toplevel/sub/entry(and category) of Trinity. It would be
helpful to get a list of the current menu hierarchy in trinity. Just a simple: -> -> etc. so we can confirm we get everything included.
