I've never needed to edit the OPF and change the guide item; "text" works just fine for anything through MobiGen, KindleGen or Previewer. But, alas--it seems NOT to work via Calibre, but as I don't use Calibre as a production tool, I have no answer to this other than exploding the epub and adding the start location manually.

HTH,

Hitch:

Yes, I agree. Changing the "text" title to "Start Reading" is only cosmetic. But as I am usually into the content.opf for other purposes, I do make the change if I think of it.

Actually, I think the Kindle devices (K3 anyway) just call it "beginning" anyway. (The "start reading" title does show up in Mobipocket Reader for PC though.)
