That should work, but I think it doesn't, due to a stylesheet trying to
be too clever and 'infer' a node's status from the presence or absence of
a '#' character.  Something that should be fixed before 0.5 is released.

Hacky Solution: edit context/library/xslt/site2book.xsl, notice
the awfulness of the '*/*' template, and hack up a temporary solution.
For instance, inserting this at the beginning of the <xsl:choose> (line
27) should fix things:

   <xsl:when test="contains(@href, '.html#') and @label">
      <menu-item label="{@label}" href="{@href}"/>

Non-hacky but boring solution: don't use site.xml.  Instead, write a
book.xml file for each directory.
