Large pages with a very large {toc} section are likely to be quite  
slow. The pages is being parsed more than once during the process of  
creating the HTML.

If I were building a FAQ in a wiki I'd make each question be it's own  
page, make links to them from a FAQ page.

One thing you could do with a socialtext wiki is create the  
individual pages, tag them with "faq" and then have another page  
where use use {category-list faq} to list the recently changed pages  
in that category with some other text context. There's a ton of stuff  
you can do with tags, wafl and searches that's not immediately  
obvious and the docs don't do a great job of exposing.

disclaimer: I work for Socialtext so anything you like is because of  
me but anything you don't like it's not my fault! :)

If there's something the people using the wiki would like to do but  
don't see a way to do it, it might exist of I might be able to point  
out an alternative, so feel free to ask me.
