Yes LOF and LOT are both examples of front matter, but so is a ToC. IMHO, the only things (standard elements) that should come before the ToC are the Cover and the Legal page (if not at the end). Anything else will likely just be contrary to user expectations.
With that said, there ARE exceptions to every rule, and this may be one (though on the surface, it doesn't sound like it). Before acquiescing, I'd ask for a better reason than the "front matter" one. Perhaps he can show you some examples of documents (external to your organization) that are organized his way? -Michael -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Deirdre Reagan Sent: Monday, February 18, 2008 4:46 PM To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: Question about TOC, LOF, LOT Hi all: My co-worker and I are debating about the order of the TOC, LOF and LOT. I say they are all tables of content, and should come in the order TOC, LOF, LOT (or LOT, LOF, I don't really mind, just TOC first). He says that LOF and LOT are front matter and are not called out in the TOC, so they should come before the TOC. Any comments?
