See the BBC report:
J.K. Rowling's new eBook suffered a formatting glitch that meant many people had to re-download a corrected version.

Does anyone know what the glitch was? I don't want to get caught out by the same thing! :p

The font sizes were too small. It only affected the US version of the book, not the British version.

What, did they put in a specific font size override in the body text or something?

Naughty! :smack:

I'd be interested to see a snippet of the CSS then. I'd also be just as interested to see Rowling fans squinting at their iPad and shouting "Engorgio!"
:rofl:
