I am at my wits' end with a new HTML Workshop project, and I'm
wondering whether any of you know what's going on with it.

I have added files to the project, and they display in the list of
files in the Project pane. When I add TOC entries in the Contents
pane, everything seems fine. The HTML titles of the files display,
and I can select the appropriate file to be associated with the TOC
entry. But when I compile the project, only the table of contents
pane is populated. The files aren't there. And if I open the .hhc
file, again the table of contents entries are there, but unassociated
with files. If I try to add a TOC entry using this window (rather
than the Contents pane), no list of HTML titles appears for me to
select from. If I double-click the TOC entry in the contents pane,
the html file appears. If I double-click the same entry in the
window displaying the .hhc file, nothing happens. No file.

I'm mystified. I don't even know why there is a separate window
opening for the .hhc file. Why is there both a Contents pane and a
separate TOC listing?

If anyone has any idea what might be going on, I'd love to hear from you.
