documentation needs in the future. 

What would help me to fully to adopt to it, is a solution to get rid of
the bullets in a numbered table of content which looks a bit unusual to

difficulties with this too, probably due to version differences of R
markdown as seen here:

Thanks for making BiocStyle and R markdown available. I really enjoy
using them. The resulting HTML pages look professionally designed and
are highly functional while allowing us to focus on generating content
in a consistent format rather than getting lost in formatting issues.
