I used this code snippet to tranform from msword to html it's perfectly working but not displayed table of contents

$transformHTMLPlugin = new Phpdocx\Transform\TransformDocAdvHTMLDefaultPlugin();

$transform = new Phpdocx\Transform\TransformDocAdvHTML('example_transformDocAdvHTML_1.docx');

$html = $transform->transform($transformHTMLPlugin);

echo $html;

but It displays the table of content like this 

Table of Contents TOC \o "1-3" \h \z \u 1.Drupal PAGEREF _Toc55492644 \h 11.1.Drupal 7 PAGEREF _Toc55492645 \h 11.1.1.Yonas PAGEREF _Toc55492646 \h 12.Joomla PAGEREF _Toc55492647 \h 22.1Jomla 8 PAGEREF _Toc55492648 \h 2Joomla a PAGEREF _Toc55492649 \h 2WordPress PAGEREF _Toc55492650 \h 3Xxx PAGEREF _Toc55492651 \h 4

The current version of Word to HTML doesn't support transforming the TOC. On you can read the supported contents and styles and how they are transformed. Instead of TOC we recommend you using links with bookmarks or cross-reference contents.

Using the conversion plugin based on libreoffice or msword ( you can generate the TOC contents and then transform the DOCX output to HTML with TransformDocAdvHTML.

To update TOCs in DOCX documents, you need to use the conversion plugin based on LibreOffice or MS Word. To use the LibreOffice one, please check the docs folder included in the package, you need to add an use a macro.
