Copyists presented a table of contents (tafasilo, tapasilo or tavasilo) in the vast majority of Khojki manuscripts. The tables would record the location of specific texts and normally list only titled works. Untitled works, such as short ginans, for instance, would be listed individually under the first line, indicating their common use during certain religious festivals and ceremonies. The tables were usually placed at the end of the volume, though occasionally they were also situated at the beginning. In manuscripts that are written in several sequences over a period of time, the table often occurs in the middle of the volume, or at the end of one of the earlier sequences.
