Can you tell from looking at that whether that seems OK?
That's fine!

I ended up with some problems.

The book didn't show up in the Kindle by name, but just as "Book". Assume I did something wrong in the making of the book and will look at that again.
Sounds as though you didn't set the title in the metadata, or you forgot to click the "Update" button after setting it.

Interestingly, despite not using the Start Reading tag, when I opened the book it took me right to the first chapter. I see that the Kindle has another menu option that I hadn't noticed called "Go to Cover" which takes you to the cover page. It did activate the toc menu item, so assume that's the result of my text editing.
Yes, that shows that you set up the table of contents guide item correctly.

Other problem, though, is that the first page of the first chapter was all centered -- all of the lines. But only that page; all others were justified. Any thoughts on that?
I can only think that you perhaps deleted something you shouldn't have when you were editing the HTML and left it centre aligned? Sorry, I've no real idea about that!
