[Mailman-Users] Digest formatting--clickable TOC?

One of the lists I'm now running uses Mailman as an aid to generating a
periodical email publication. People send in items for topics, and an
editor grafts them into a single large message that goes out about twice a
month. The eventual publication looks a lot like a mailman digest, and
that's what I'm switching it to.

The single-most user-requested improvement to this publication is that they
want clickable links in the Table of Contents that anchor down to the
entries in the list.

I understand that mailman can do digests as a series of MIME attachments to
the TOC email, one for each posting. I don't think that's going to work for
this crowd, although I'm not sure.

And I understand that not all email clients support anchors in
html-formatted messages. But has anybody done something like this (where a
digest's TOC is clickable and links down to the contents)? Are there other
options I'm not thinking about?
