It seems that when it rains, it pours. I have yet another question for
all of you. BTW, for those interested in what we decide to do for
on-line help for our new Java application, I'll be sure to post when a
decision is made--that will likely be a few months down the road at the
pace things seem to go.

And now, on to my question (I've cross-posted to PDF-L):

I'm using Frame to generate bookmarks for my pdf according to my Frame
p-tags. In most cases this works beautifully (isn't Frame great)--in
books with a cover, TOC, preface, and a body file.

However, I can't seem to get the system to recognize the hierarchy of
one certain p-tag when I have multiple body (chapter) files. It's the
p-tag we use for our chapter name--there's only one chapter name p-tag
per file. But after distilling, the pdf file bookmarks are all
skeewompus. Sometimes it puts all the first-level headings from each
chapter under the pervious chapter's bookmark. Sometime is puts the
chapter bookmarks on the same level as first-level heading with nothing
under them. I know I've set the hierarchy up correctly in Frame. Does
anyone have any ideas about why this happens or what I can do about it?
