Since I`m making one but after 330K it stops recognizing paragraph styles, I`m working from Indesign 4.
Thanks for your help!
Simple:
EPUB is a container (a Zip file with certain, extra rules) of many pieces:
styles, pictures,text, metadata, view_order.

All that may be hidden from eye when using certain creation tools ( don't use Indesign, so I don't know if it can show the underpinnings).


So, as a content creator, you must make the decision whether to cater to the non-purist viewer implementations that the Apples, Adobes and others, have put into the the users devices.
