This does not tell us what gets added to the resulting MOBI for the K2 to use. When I try exploding Joshua's AZW file (which is DRM-free) using mobi2html (MobiPerl) or mobi2oeb (Calibre) I don't see anything obvious. I get a toc.ncx from mobi2oeb, but that is normal.
Yeah that's why I suggested converting an ePub. I'd still like to know exactly what they create with this NCX exactly, and this doesn't explain how newspapers work either.
