Done that, Charleski. Result is now:
Stanza no italics, pinyin ok
Adobe no italics, no pinyin
Calibre no italics, pinyin ok
Iriver no italics, no pinyin
I've uploaded a copy of a much shortened file, comprising merely a part of chapter one. All the words in a foreign language should be in italics, that's the following words/phrases:
Tanda panee lao mehebani
Nǐhǎo (i and a in this word appear as ? in some cases)
Also note that the epub file includes two images which I have yet to begin experimenting with. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof!
Grateful for any help.
