Thanks for replying.
You and HarryT both mentioned the HTML.
I have this book in HTML format as well. The .rar archive contained only 3 files:
I have looked at the .html file, and the example word I keep using ("I've")
appears right in the raw html as "Ive". There's _no_ characters at all between the "I" and the "v".
It appears the problem lies either in a tag somewhere in the .html file, or with the .ncx or .opf file, neither of which I am familiar with.
I'd love to be able to edit this, but I'm at a loss what to look for.
