Here's an example of a Mobipocket file where the NCX isn't nested anymore: you'll get waypoints for part/sections very close from one another but I believe that it's better to have a waypoint on the part anyway.

Is there no way to use the fix you came up with with Calibre? While it nice it can be in feedbooks books it would also be very nice if books and news created by Calbre had the feature.

All books on Feedbooks now use the 5-way controller navigation.

Does this 5-way controller navigation cause any trouble for Calibre or Mobipocket (non-Kindle)?

What do you mean when you say trouble ? On non-Kindle devices, it won't change anything.

.prc is an common file extension for a mobipocket ebook file. Why do you think it is not a "mobi" file?

MOBIs from FeedBooks still work in Windows MobiPocket Reader and FBReader and Calibre's viewer.

If I use Calibre to reconvert the PRC file to MOBI with updated metadata, will I lose the waypoints?

Well, it's been assigned to me in the Calibre trac.... I'm in the process of getting ramped back up after my absence from calibre and the e-book scene. A lot of bugs to chomp through, but this is actually interesting so I'll probably end up *ahem* "over-prioritizing" it.

Thanks Hadrien! It is great that this feature has been added to books at Feedbooks. The .mobi file I downloaded to test worked great.

I might be over simplifying this but if you know how to do this with an actual .mobi file instead of a .prc file can't this info be told to the Calibre team? While it is great that books on Feedbooks have this feature I'm looking very forward to it being a feature on books converted and news created with Calibre.

Thanks!

We know what to provide as input to MobiPocket's Creator or mobigen.exe to get them to create the waypoints. What we don't, exactly, know is what these programs put into the MOBI output for the Kindle to read as waypoints. Since Calibre and MobiPerl don't use MobiPocket code, we are missing one extra step. This will have to be worked out by reverse engineering the MOBI output of mobigen.exe.
