HTML5 (OT 2.5.2) restricting Nav output to a single chapter

I'm extending the html5 transform from the OT 2.5.2 and I'm having trouble figuring out how to restrict the output of the full navigation to only the current chapter. I know that this is done by extending the org.dita.html5\xsl\nav.xsl file, but I can't figure out how to direct the xpath to select t...

This is awesome and works great! Thanks! This is going to be helpful for our documentation workflow.

I don't know how the <root> code works because it doesn't show up in the output (just a curious observation).

Re: Ignoring a copy-to file Error

As I was putting the sample files together and testing them, I got this feature to work! Go figure!

What I was doing wrong was xref'ing to the results file (conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.html) instead of the new (copy-to) file (conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.dita).
