  eximdoc4-4.77/doc-docbook/index.html has only 2 links: 1 to 
spec.html and the other to filter.html.  I think debian used to
ship a similar file somewhere in /usr/share/doc/exim4-doc-html/.

  The local spec.html that I got from Debian and the one I see
on exim.org have the same format.  I don't see any pop-out ToC.  
Is it because I am using various firefox add-ons? 
  On what circumstances do the pop-out ToC pops out?  I mean,
should it pop out when the mouse is over some word?  Does it
makes the reader wait a short time until it disappears?  Does
it constantly occupies valuable screen area?
  My preference is a per chapter ToC in the footer, and as less
javascript as possible.
