I must agree with Gerhard. I have no clue what outlining means. However,
book is just as bad IMO as I can't quite relate it to the hierarchal
structuring it provides. The same goes for taxonomy, which I still don't
know what it means. I can use it, but I can't explain it.

Structuring organize categories hierarchy are words that crossed my mind.

Sorry for not being very creative/productive here.
