Actually, I rather think it doesn't work as you've all mentioned simply because the mobi-built TOC is not IN the original html file or files. So, a simple href or # link wouldn't work; it would, instead, be something along the lines of:

Code:
<a href="mbp_toc.html">Jump to TOC</a>
Wouldn't it? We do it all the time in epubs, for anthologies (requested by authors, no matter how many times we point out the ubiquity of the TOC availability)...but that's a slightly different architecture, and we have the toc already handy for it...

In other words, I think it is not working quite simply because the method you're using presumes that the toc is a named element within the same html file, and it isn't; it's an altogether separate html file, and thus needs an external link to work within the ecosystem of the (packed) mobi. I've not tried this in specificity, because we gen our mobi's from epubs...but I use it occasionally w/MBPCreator on one-offs with other files, like copyright pages that are separate html files, within the Guide, and it works fine...I'd think this should work.

HTH,
