Even aside from the question of manually making a working ToC, I'd like to know how the automatic generation works. For example, what is a "flat" ToC? What is a "landmark guide"? How do the five checkboxes interact? How can I predict which sections will get a ToC entry and which won't? (It seems random.) Will the ToC be the same for ePub, mobi, and pdf? Is there any way at all to control anything about the formatting?

For ePub books, I think I can modify the HTML, either directly or using a tool like Sigil. For mobi, I have no idea what to do.

That's my entry to the wish list.
