I have a friend who's the production VP for a book publisher that
does a lot of eBook stuff. He tells me this is only possible on OS X
with Adobe inDesign ($700 SRP) and even then there's a bug in
inDesign that means that once you've auto-generated the TOC and
bookmarks you have to review them all and tweak some or many of them.
David, I'm going to contact you off-list about your project when I
get this current issue solved.
