Thanks. This helps. However, this entry currently includes the title prefix "GNU LilyPond - ", which I consider out of place here: - it dilutes the contrast between the different document titles - it increases the effort needed to check the title (a glance is insufficient; you have to read and parse) - in narrow windows the title is more likely to be split onto two lines - it blurs the hierachical succession of section < document < documentation. Without the prefix the title is then just e.g. "Learning Manual", which corresponds to what you see in the documentation overview.

Also done.

Maybe you consider this superfluous, but by "breadcrumb" I was also implying that it should be emphasised in the same way as the other breadcrumbs, i.e. you see *all* levels of the vertical path. This is because I regard B as just another entry in the TOC. The TOC does not need a title.

And in the meantime the latest styling more or less hides this new feature ...
