    You have to be using a version of MultiMarkdown >= 4.7.

    Your sample works just fine in versions of MMD that support the
    `{{TOC}}` syntax.

    Latest versions are here:

    Oh, thank you very much.

    I use the right version 5.1.0, but I think I have found where is the point.
    I typed "markdown 1.txt" or "multimark down 1.txt" in the command line tool, and got the wrong result.
    But when I type "multimarkdown 1.txt > 1.html", I get the right result.

    Thank you very much, Fletcher.

    If you installed markdown via the MultiMarkdown installer, it runs MultiMarkdown in compatibility mode. This causes it to run without any special extensions.

    Glad it's working!
