There isn't a suitable parameter. But you can control it via CSS.

  1. Set a value for the html.stylesheet parameter -- the name of
     an external CSS stylsheet (e.g., "style.css")

  2. Create a new file with whatever named you've used for the
     html.stylesheet parameter and (if you're using the default
     setting for toc.list.type), put this into it:

       div.toc dd {
         margin-left: 0;

     That will cause the cause the whole TOC to be unindented.

     If you want _some_ indentation but less that what your
     browser renders by default, add this:

       div.toc dd dt {
         margin-left: 5px;

       div.toc dd dd {
         margin-left: 10px;

Run your output through "tidy" (HTML Tidy). I do it this way:

  tidy -im *.html

Or if I have output in multiple subdirectories, this:

  find . -name "*.html" -exec tidy -im {} \;

Hope that helps.
