Hummmm let me explain better. When I say:

I mean I'm using \section{Whatever}, whithout numbering
(\def\thesection{}) and it does appear in \tableofcontents. The problen
is that, instead of (these are section titles in the body of the
document)

1 blah
2 blablah
Wathever

I get

1 blah
2 blablah
Wathever

So I want to know what can I do (probably in the command
\def\thesection{}) to avoid this indenting.

Thanks,
Leo.
