Info on 10.5 server docs reads:
PDF Producer: Adobe PDF Library
Content Creator: Adobe InDesign CS 3
On 10.4 server docs it's
Acrobat Distiller 6.0.1 for Mac and FrameMaker 6.0
However, i disagree when you say printing a document gives no indication on the structure: It depends on what you send to the PDF printer.
As I said, with OpenOffice 2.4.1 you'll get a TOC in your PDFs. OpenOffice is likely to have some other PDF library than the Apple software based on Cocoa and Carbon.

My feedback to Apple:
"As pertains to the Apple Discussions Forum, I will not allow myself to be further abused by your members. If this is how Apple Discussion Group members are treated, I am ashamed to counted amongst your numbers. Questions are met with animosity and disrespect, and total disregard for the effect such disregard might have on an individual. I am shocked and dismayed that Apple might host a forum that so traumatizes a person with private disclosure."
You should all remember that you, once, did not know all that you presently know. Some of us have to rely on your learning, unfortunately! I will seek other avenues, because you are obviously too caught up in your own being. May you die knowing that your end is the beginning.
Harsh words in return for me saying:
- search the forums before posting
- use OpenOffice if you want a PDF with TOC (here's the link: http://www.openoffice.org/index.html )
When I said: "It's a shame" I meant "I feel your pain". It's a shame Apple's software (like Pages.app) isn't yet able to produce a TOC in PDFs. I need this too - I found a solution some day ago, that I was offering you: OpenOffice.
The other guy wanted to direct you to this: http://www.adobe.com/products/indesign/
This is commercial software, you have to pay for it as opposed to OpenOffice.
I hope you can accept my apologies that I obviously offended you without knowing. You're three line question with three letter words made you seem quite computer savvy.
Here's the complete How-To (be warned: it is as complex as in Pages.app or in Word - therefor it's quite extensive):
The good thing is: To get a PDF with a TOC in the sidebar, after you followed the how-to, all you have to do is to export your document as a PDF from OpenOffice.
Again, this is not possible with Pages.app.
Just a last note (a short version of the how-to I provided):
In order to get a TOC (be it in the beginning of a document or in the sidebar of your PDF viewer), you need to apply styles to your headings. OpenOffice decides upon these styles whether a line of text should be treated as a heading (which will show up in your Table Of Contents) or just as the body of your text (which will not be in the TOC).
