How do I start on the cover image?

Hi !

I want my mobi file to open on the cover image. How can I do that? All my epubs start on the cover page and I want the same for the mobi files. What should I write in the <guide> section of my opf file?

Since I code by hand, I don't want to use any software.


Thanks

AFAIK, you need to declare the "COVER" HTML with a "type=text" in the <guide> something like below:

Code:
<guide>
    <reference href="Text/cover.xhtml" title="Cover" type="cover" />
    <reference href="Text/xxxxxx.xhtml" title="toc" type="toc" />
    <reference href="Text/cover.xhtml" title="Start" type="text" />
</guide>
