I have a retail mobi copy of Phil Rickman's The Lamp of the wicked
when I view mobi, in KIndle for PC or incalibre viewer, chapter numbers are all OK
but when I convert mobi to epub & view the outrput I am losing chapter numbers 1 through 9,
in sigil i see code like
<div class="sgc-1" id="filepos22360"></div>
<h1 class="calibre1" id="calibre_pb_16">Foul Water</h1>
what i should be seeing is
<div class="sgc-1" id="filepos22360">1</div>
for all the 2 digit chapter numbers I do see a 2 digit number in that div line
UPDATE EDIT: bug report now filed, with mobi attached ( no DRM)
it is possible the the free sample from amazon will exhibit the same behaviour though.
does anyone have a hypotheses which could explain the lost numbers.
NB converting with heuristics OFF, no strange settings
UPDATE - looking harder - I also see this, on each of the problem chapter pages:
what puts that there ?
also from chapter 10 onwards the epub conversion puts each chapter number into its own xhtml file, followed by an xhtml which contains the chapter header text & the chapter text. see example below
don't know how to check if that is in the original mobi ?
<h1 class="calibre1" id="filepos212373">10</h1>
