Hyphenation removal is partially regex based. I've never seen a book where it takes a long time for that feature, but some books can have strings of text which can drastically slow down particular regexes.

You can open a bug on the bug tracker if you want it checked out, but eventually it should finish that step.

Trying to create the epub file (for loading to Calibre) using text files rather than HTML files now. Every time I try using html files the TOC fails to work right for me. I don't know why. I've even tried changing the tags from H1 to H2 like suggested and things still fail to come out right when I convert to mobipocket format.

What do you mean by the 'TOC fails to work'? Are you still seeing the issue where you get a TOC 'except' for the book title?

Does Sigil/ADE show a valid TOC before conversion? If so the main thing you need to do is make sure the 'force use of auto-generated Table of Contents' is disabled under the Table of Contents option. This is the default, but a lot of people enable this, which will throw out all the hard work you did with Sigil.

That might be my problem then. I didn't know that having the force auto gen TOC option could actually mess things up. I'll try running the epub through Calibre with that turned off and see what happens. My TOC has either gotten scrambled or parts fail to even appear is what I meant by it failing to work. I have a good TOC in Sigil but then end up with it not coming out right in Calibre. Thanks for the tip on the auto-generated TOC option.
Edit: That was what I was doing wrong. I'll remember to leave that box unchecked in future. I'll be uploading the Homer Omnibus in a little bit.
