   Starred (*) hierarchical divisions don't appear in the table of  
   contents by themselves. Below your section* you have to add:


Thank you, I was using it unsuccessfully until you showed me this.

   I don't know the article class, but I guess something like in the  
   book.cls (which clear the page after Contents anyway) would work:  
   after \tableofcontents


Right, I added a \newpage beneath \tableofcontents.

   Again, I don't know article.cls, but I would follow William Adams  
   recommendation and try memoir.cls (the manual itself is outstanding,  
   as William has noted many times).

I am going to find the solution to the page numbering.



Axel, thank you for your time and hints--they led me further into the
documentation where I am finding answers. In fact, I stumbled on the
code that alphabatizes the words of a document as a step in building
an index.
