Hi Chris, Regarrding your first question, you can set the stylesheet param named 'generate.toc' to empty to turn off the TOC chunk. You will still get the NCX toc. I noticed the same issue with customizing the epub 2 stylesheet. If your customization consists only of parameter settings, then importing it should work. However, it is a chunking stylesheet, so any template changes require paying careful attention to import precedence for them to work. Generally that requires two separate customization files, but the epub/docbook.xsl needs to be rearranged for that to work. Based on the experience I gained from creating the epub 3 stylesheet, I plan to rearrange the files in the epub directory for EPUB 2 output to make it easier to customize.

Since the toc is never needed (the ncx supplants a toc), would it make sense to delete the call to generate it such that annoyance is removed?

Epubs have a table of contents used by readers (toc.ncx?) which makes the generated HTML table of contents rather superfluous. How does one prevent its generation in 1.76.1?
Actually a rather more general question is how (or what's best practice) to customize the epub stylesheets. The shipped epub/docbook.xsl doesn't really seem amenable to being customized by an importing stylesheet. The FO stylesheets are significantly more flexible in this regard.
Or should I be editing a copy of epub/docbook.xsl and customizing it that way? There's a lot of logic in that stylesheet that I really don't want to copy and try and keep in sync with the shipping file.
