Table of Contents not generated in DTBook on epub export.

When I go to export to epub, I lose the Table of Contents that I created in InDesign CS5.5.  How can it be regenerated for the DTBook?

    All the documentation I have read for created EPUB are to export XHTML, rather than DTBook. I'm not sure if it follows the same rules as EPUB for XHTML.


    Assuming it does, you need to do two things: (1) Create a TOC Style (not just a Table of Contents) in the Layout menu. (2) When in the Export EPUB dialog > Contents panel, specify the TOC Style you created.


    In an "normal" EPUB 2.01, that would do two things: It would create a navigational TOC shown in every EPUB reader, and it would leave the TOC you placed on your page as an internal TOC.

    Sorry, I no users of DTBooks, nor do I know any documentation for DTBooks. If it's not in the menu, it's probably not allowed in whatever standard DTBooks follow.
