The Bookmarks of PDF Version ECMAScript Standard Are Broken

# Timothy Liu (2 months ago)

Dear ES-Discuss:

First of all, appreciate your hard work which made ECMAScript/JavaScript a first-class programming language on the Earth. I'm a technical writer. Recently, I'm going to initial a book writing for ES8. After I download the ECMA-262.pdf, I found the bookmarks of the PDF file are now working. I tried both in the browser and Acrobat Reader. It seems the older version PDF files have the same issue. Would you like to take a look and do a quick fix? It is very inconvenient reading without bookmark navigation.

Best , Happy New Year! Timothy

I think the spec is generated via bterlson/ecmarkup from HTML files like tc39/ecma402/tree/master/spec

Maybe it'd be worth filing a bug on ecmarkup since that's probably the piece that generates the TOC in the generated PDF.

tc39/ecma262#766 might be relevant.

Thank you very much. That issue is precisely the one I met.

Best , Tim
