ok - well iv'e fixed up my the chapter numbers as simple h2 tags in sigil , to avoid gettign side trcked by TOC issue

i thought the filepos did nothign but then i found the final xhtml contained a toc coded with links back to those filepos values, thus is was gettign out of step and confused as I messsed around.

so I ditched that toc completely, make the chapter number sino h2 tags & let calibre & sigil do trheir thing.

I now have workign toc in both epub & mobi.
& chapter start code like this
Code:
body class="calibre">
  <div class="calibre1" id="filepos20356">
    <h2 id="heading_id_2">3</h2>
I am 99% sure the div - filepos line is now totally redundant but I will leave it there for now.

to test the h2 - margin top idea i go to .css
and add your line:
@namespace h "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";
h2 {margin-top:0}
.bold {
font-weight: bold
}

save - convert to mobi .. and ...

no difference.

I reckon that kindle software insists on adding the space. when I@e not seen it it's because books had no chapter / header tags but just happened to have toc that worked

I think I will accept that the space is supposed to be there. note that I've learnt a bit about filepos & toc in the course of the afternoon, & quit while I'm ahead.

will be happy to read your feedback though
