BTW, I notice that there's a book.xmlk file in each directory (dev/, 
design/, altdesign/, etc.). Do I need a site.xml in those since I'm 
"ridding" the site of book.xml files? (Also, I noticed this at the end 
of the link you previously sent:

   In general, however, we  recommend that users avoid book.xml.

(which I take as further confirmation that my eradication of book.xml 
is appropriate)
