LD-2087 Frameless Table of Contents now respect background color.

However this means that titles containing a Table of Contents set to frameless will now have a background color appear (typically defaulted to white) whereas previously the color was ignored. Titles should be checked to ensure all frameless Table of Contents have the desired background appearance.
