Hi Jay -
Yes, it's a part of the issue with the mis-numbered chapters as well. I'm
using INCLUDE code to bring in chapters from the Grannie's Guide to Sugar. I
might rename those chapters (they are chapters but the need to be
subsections here) depending on the solution, but it might be that the
INCLUDE code I'm using doesn't match the needs for these sections (they need
to be subsections of the larger chapter.)

We'll keep working on that issue and may need to remove the INCLUDEs and
just copy/paste the SoaS Windows information instead of embedding it in
order to resolve these paired issues with hierarchy and numbering. It would
be a shame to lose it though, because the reuse of the content would be very
valuable in this case.
