Hi,

I am using Greenstone 2.62. Thanks for your support. I
am now able to display images of slides as pages with
page navigation facility. I think I was making some
mistake in format document string. Few more things I
am trying to do. I am trying to use go to page option,
but after entering a valid page number, nothings
happens (can I remove this button in future). Can I
remove the page navigation arrows which are displayed
on the top of the images. Can I display table of
contents of the slides with title of each slide as
title for the page. ( I am getting the page title as
page navigation arrows).
