I don't want links from the first tab or any pages on the first tab to reference the pages
on the
other tab; this is why I am using another tab.

Cocoon sees the index page in the subdirectory since i get an error if it is not valid xml.
book.xml a Forrest thing?  Could I somehow specify this in site.xml?  How do i specify a tab
