The links would be in the individual content files pointing to the previous and next files. For example, c002.html would contain:

<link rel="prev" href="c001.html">
<link rel="next" href="c003.html">

A few browsers (Opera, Firefox) even know what to do with these links. I wonder if there are a11y benefits to this, as some guidelines recommend their use.

Note that I'm not attempting to do things like EPUB3's multiple renditions.
