An epitome; yes, that's the same kind of thing (the ORA books had
the equivalent of chapter TOCs but they could have been in prose
and served the same purpose).

Ah.  I'd have to say that that author was stretching the utility
of Highlights and should put the one-liner in the text (too), but
I get the point.

Probably.  Anyway, there was a reason.
