How to define the "Start" or "Beginning" page in Calibre


I can't seem to define the "Start" or "Beginning" page when converting the raw HTML file to mobi in Calibre. It seems like most of the Kindle books I download start at Chapter One, missing out the front matter. This is how I would like to format Kindle books.

It's a simple matter in mobipocket (there's a dialog box in the Guide section) What this does, is add a line to the OPF file in the Reference Section.

I have tried using "Start reading at Xpath Expression" in Calibre under the Structure Detection menu, but haven't had any success.

I've researched this online but havenít found a solution.

Can Calibre do this? How? If not it seems like a must-have wish list item.
