View Full Version : Skipping pages...?

Aside from ADE, the epub I'm working on seems to work fine.... and a very similar situation in another epub works fine.. comparing the two seems to get me no answers.

I get to a section at the end of my book about 'other books in this series', and the first page of that is dandy- but when I try for the next page, it bounds right to the last page, skipping over a page (or two, depending on whether I make a section header for the 2nd book listed)

-and when you go BACK a page, it behave normally, going to a skipped page. Going forward again skips to the last page again.

I've tried shedding it down to just simple text with no code in it, but it keeps happening. Anyone heard of this?

In case it helps at all, here's the code I WANT to have.. (I'm not sure why I post this though, since as I've said, deucing the html source to simple text doesn't remove the issue)

this paste includes the last line of the story, and leads into the 'other books', right through to the end. This was also taken from the epub itself, and not the pre-conversion html I edit in.

This is nuts... while viewing in ADE, if I reduce the font size twice, so that it's a 2-page view, it works fine. I'm wondering if I should just chalk it up to ADE effin up, and leave it as is. Not that it's spiffy to have my 'ad' chopped up for people viewing in certain modes using ADE, but I guess it's not the end of the world. Hell, it's the MOBI I need more anyway, and it seems to be fine.
