Next, I built the SiteMap using SiteMap Creator. I cleaned up the sitemap a bit (for some reason, the links only really work after I've run them through Word - maybe I'm not doing something right), and assembled it all in Mobipocket Creator. (Raided and added a couple graphics from Wikipedia).

Packed it all into the attached zip - resultant gutenmarked/slightly touched htmls, sitemap, graphics, opf, prc, etc.

In truth, I'd want to spend more time cleaning up the files, but hey, I was in a hurry.

Here's hoping the toes I've tread on aren't vengeful........

Thanks. I've just not gotten the hang of creating an external ToC file for Mobigen/Mobipocket Creator. This will help to study your "quick and dirty" example.
