HTML Page to EPUB Named Anchor Problem

I am trying to convert an HTML page to EPUB using Calibre version 1.5.
The conversion works but all of the named anchors in the ebook Table of Contents link back to the web site.
How do I tell Calibre to convert the named anchors to go to the proper ebook page?
This is the HTML page I am trying to convert, http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/single-page.html.
TIA.

Interesting ....
On my Nook HD+, when I try to view pages 9-24 the Reader crashes.
On the PC using Nook for PC the program crashes when I try to view the book?

Downloading Kovid's linked file directly to my Nexus 7 2013:
  • I paged through the first couple of sections (Introduction through to the end of A Quick Introduction to HTML) without problem.
  • Using the internal ToC (not Moon's) I was able to use the links to go directly to various sections.
  • I also tapped on a few of the inline links and those took me elsewheres in the ebook.
These tests were done using Moon+ Reader Pro.


Gknitz,
Perhaps the issue is with the Nook reader in the hardware/software? I would suggest trying the book in another reader to see if the same thing happens on both the Nook and PC - if possible.

Oh, and were you trying Kovid's linked file or your own? You would need to try both - just in case there is a difference in the conversion settings used.

The Nook HD+ software is up todate but I purchased several PDF readers which may have modified the Reader App. Thanks, I'll do some research!!!

Is there something I need to set in the configuration to get the named anchors to link within the file?
I have attached a copy of the file I generated on a PC and the links in the HTML TOC still go to the live website???
TIA.

It has nothing to do with the conversion and everything to do with how you saved the web page. Using Firefox if you save page as Web Page, complete you get links to the web. If you save page as Web Page, HTML only you get local drive links within the document.

Then you would lose all of the images and any other links (such as styles) which could be important in a specification or any HTML page. So you need to save it as a Web Page, Complete and then tell Calibre to remove the fully qualified URLs. Maybe through the "search and replace" ???

I was wrong. Web Page, Complete or Web Page, HTML Only still saves the file with local disk links in the TOC.

So this is not a conversion issue.

I just did a Save page as Web Page, Complete and all of the links in the TOC were local disk links. I then converted the book and the resultant epub has external links in it because they are meant to point to external web sites, but everything in the TOC points to locations in the epub itself.

How are you managing to save the page without the TOC being local disk links?

Turns out I use Chrome most of the time, so I saved it in Chrome


This is the Introduction link in FireFox for Web Page, Complete
<a href="#introduction"><span class="secno">1 </span>Introduction</a>

This is the Introduction link in Chrome for Web Page, Complete
<a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/introduction.html#introduction"><span class="secno">1 </span>Introduction</a>

So, it looks like it's a Browser issue, WOW!
Thanks for your help

Also, how did you setup the configuration so the EPUB TOC has the expanding arrow ">" that opens up to more TOC selections.
Thanks again.

Gary.

The easiest way (which is not what I did) is to convert the book then use the Edit TOC tool built into calibre. Select the book entry, right click and select Edit TOC and choose Create TOC from all headings.

To get a multi-level ToC just use the level 1-3 toc xpath settings in the conversion section:

Level 1:
//h:h2

Level 2:
//h:h3

Level 3:
//h:h4
