Traditional media has a ToC and an Index. The index would be more of a
site map, but I see the ToC looking something like this:
Chapter 1: Getting Started
Chapter 2: The Admin interface
Chapter 3: Customization / Themes
Chapter 4: Add-ons / Plugins
Chapter 5: Expansion
Chapter 6: Advanced Usage
Chapter 7: Writing your own themes / plugins
Appendix 1: Glossary
Appendix 2: Function / Coding Reference
Appendix 3: Miscellany
Appendix 4: Index

If something ends up in the wrong place, hopefully it will be spotted
and corrected fairly quickly.
