In the xdocs/ directory, the realms/ directory or both? Typically it
should be in both directories' book.xml files.

It processes all files that are <link>'ed to, or mentioned in book.xml.
So if your src/documentation/content/xdocs/book.xml has:

<menu-item label="Realms" href="realms/index.html"/>

and realms/ has book.xml and index.xml, it should all work. I can send
you a demo if you like.

distribution of Forrest")
