What would be really useful is if someone could was able to:
1. get an official X-Ray file for a book (are there any free books with X-Ray data?)
2. generate a X-Ray file for the same book from the web version, or the Calibre plug-in
3. post them somewhere for comparison
That might help to nail down the problems. Since (AFAIK) there's no officially published file format it's hard to work out what's wrong.
Here's the original X-Ray file for a free Kindle book called "The Sword and The Flame: The Forging":
I imported the book into Calibre and converted to (old format) MOBI, then used the web-based X-Ray generator to generate an X-Ray file. It's available here:
Hope this helps.
