Mobi Creator build errors

Hi all,

I'm currently converting some text files ready for my kindle. I have followed HarryT's 2 guides to the letter.

Firstly editing the text in BD and then going to mobi pocket creator.

I've manually replaced the html tags and added the ones per HarryT

For example here is my A name=toc

Code:
<DIV >&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV >&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</DIV>
<mbp:pagebreak/>
<SPAN id=title><A name=toc><DIV align=center><FONT color=#001950><B>CONTENTS</B></FONT></DIV></A>
</SPAN>
When I run mobi creator i get:

Warning(prcgen): Hyperlink not resolved: D:\ebook\Kindle\Sherlock\Book1\book.html#toc

Warning(prcgen): Hyperlink not resolved: D:\ebook\Kindle\Sherlock\Book1\book.html#start_rea ding

Warning(prcgen): Hyperlink could not resolved.

I've searched high and low with no luck.

Any help would be great,

Thanks

It sounds like your anchor tags were not found in the HTML file (book.html#toc refers to an anchor tag named "toc").

Maybe because you did not put quotes around "toc"? It should be like <a name="toc">.

I've always used the Table of Contents Wizard in Mobipocket Creator, which creates the TOC based on expressions matching other HTML tags (like h1, h2, etc.) in the book.

Hi Susan,

Thanks for your response.

I've tried changing the tag to have "" around toc but I still get the same error.

I'm a complete noob hence why I exactly followed HarryT's guide.

No, the quotes aren't necessary. You can put them in if you wish, but they aren't required.

Is your book file actually called "book.html"? You're sure that it's not called "book.htm"?
