Help with Chapter detection

I have a large pdf file with 79 chapters (called Parts). The format is:

"Part" [number] [name]

e.g. Part 1 Introduction

I wish to create a Table of Contents within an ePub file.

The default chapter detection settings work to a degree - any Part that has a one word title is detected, but any with more than one word is not.

Therefore: "Part 1 Introduction" is detected, but "Part 79 The End" is not.

Could anyone tell me what I need to change in the XPath expression for chapter detection to remedy this problem? I have tried to read the XPath tutorial but it goes way over my head.

Many thanks in advance.
