It's clear that Amazon is phasing MBPC out, which is (sentimentally) sad; as I said, we only use it now to start training the utter noobs, and not on any live books, but it was a nice tool while it lasted.

Thanks, Hitch...

I have not forgotten that you and I have discussed this problem many times in the past.

BUT... as far as I know, the info Mike offers now is new...

The Microsoft article does offer a way to make IE 9 look like IE 8 to Mobipocket... which would solve the incompatibility problem.

It does not need to solve the TOC problem, because it's better to use the MS Word TOC, anyway.

I realize this conversation happened a few weeks ago but it addresses a problem you and I both want to solve... and Mike appears to offer the solution.

I think the reason the previous discussion did not reach a successful conclusion was that the participants were trying to create their TOCs with Mobipocket, which doesn't work in this case.

I don't know html well enough to modify the html files, so I came back here hoping one of the html experts would dive in and explain how to do that.

As you know, I write for the total newbie... so whatever is easier for them, that is what I want to describe for them.
