File not in manifest - how to recover?

I came across a book - short story, actually - where the actual text file containing the story was listed in the miscellaneous section of the editor. Running check book, I was offered a choice to remove any reference to it, but what I really wanted to do was get it properly recognized in the text section - add it to the manifest, I guess is what was needed.

I tried exporting it, and then adding it as a new file - deleting the original-, but that was still not recognized, even though the imported file showed up in the text section. I looked at the .opf file to see if I could add it manually, but the syntax defeated me.

I finally created a new, empty file, and copied the content into it, and deleted the original file, and that worked - luckily, it was only one short file.

Does anybody know of an easier way to handle this sort of thing? Somewhere I've got a couple of books with this problem that are bigger and more complicated, that I've not been able to fix.

Thanks!

The file needs to have a valid extension for the Text section.
HTML, Xhtml (and possibly: HTM)

Yes, it had an html extension. But I'm don't know what you mean by the [/U] part. Where would I see that, or work it into the export/import?

The extension would be visible by your OS file manager while exported.
Look close, there may be errors (space, extra char, 1 instead of L)

BTW
Why not validate that file while exported? (obviously, the CSS will be missing)

Checked the extension, and it is OK. I opened it in a browser, gedit, and bluefish, and it all seems to work as it should--none of those throw any errors. I think it must be something I did wrong. Wish now I'd saved the original epub!

Next time I run into one of these I'll slow down, see what I'm doing, and if I can't make it work, at least I should be able to ask more intelligent questions! Thanks for the tips.
