I just came across a rather odd bug, and I'd appreciate it if people would check their Epub reader and see if it's duplicated there.

My NASA ebook uploads show a rather interesing bug in Adobe DE. There are buttons at the end of each section for next, previous and TOC. The buttons are valid html and work in both Mobipocket and calibre's ebook viewer (in Epub). They do not work in Adobe DE.

I'd like to know if this behavior is the same on ebook reader running Adobe's software. Can everyone please check?

They work but they don't get highlighted on my prs-505 like regular hyperlinks so you cant really see what you have selected when hitting the enter button.


Great book btw.

I was hoping for more responses, but the 505 has the oldest version of Adobe's software. If it's clean then so the later version probably are as well.

And thank you.

On my EZ Reader (Hanlin V3), with mobile ADE, there does not seem to be a way to select these hyperlinks. This seems to be true of standard hyperlinks also (i.e. hyperlinks in ePub not supported at all).

Since there is a separate TOC which does work, the ebook is still usable. However, since hyperkinks are not supported, neither are the links to references.

This does work well with Desktop FBReader.

I also used Calibre to convert to MOBI, and then EZ Reader was able to follow standard hyperlinks, but it could not detect the hyperlink buttons (although Calibre may have disabled them, since they don't work in Desktop MobiPocket Reader either).

On the Opus, all the normal hyperlinks in the text and the TOC work just fine, but the graphical ones at the end of the chapters are not "selectable", hence cannot be used.
