Editing mobi file for toc

How does one edit a mobi file created in Calibre? I am saving a Word doc, with links, as a htm file and then converting that (zipped) in Calibre to mobi and ePub for Kindle and iPad.

The mobi file looks great on my Kindle but it doesn't link to the Table of Contents in the Kindle menu - the selection is grayed out. I know how to get Kindle to recognize this as I have edited the prc file in Mobipocket Creator by inserting a <toc> anchor into the code.

But my Creator conversion is screwing up all the punctuation symbols while my Calibre conversion looks great. So my question is how do I edit the mobi file in Calibre or some other editing program to insert the two simple lines of code? Creator will not import a file with a mobi extension, which is bizarre since it is their file format. Needs a .obf file?

Also wondering how to create a .prc file from my mobi file.
