Testing the EBW1150/REB1200 capabilities
EDIT: In this old thread from 2006 I found a EBW1150 attachment created a long time ago that showed all the fonts and characters available as a small Quick reference: EBWQuickRef.imp by P. Ludowissy. Well it turns out MobileRead member allovertheglobe is the author of all the reference .imp's in this post. Kudos to allovertheglobe for a truly valuable and inspirational exploration of everything .imp!
From the intro...
This file tests most HTML tags and some XHTML and CSS features as well. It's not intended to be a complete guide, though it may serve as a basis for such a document if someone feels inclined to write it.
There are a number of non-standard behaviours, which may be due to SBpublisher's interpretation as much as quirks in the actual REB1200 firmware. Updated firmware, as well as new tools to turn (X)HTML into REB's native .imp format may change that. This document might also help tracking those changes.
The original 'testbed' for this document was a REB1200 firmware 2.0, with files hand-written in VIm and generated by SBpublisher 1.5 via html2sb.exe.
This 'testbed' (REBTestDocSrc.zip
) was created by 'allovertheglobe' specifically for the REB 1200 and was posted to the REB1200 Yahoo group in 2002. By reading the source .html, it can provide a wealth of information; relevant even today. A REB1200 Quick Reference (REBQuickRef_1200.imp
) was included, without direct
source, but since then a EBW1150 Quick Reference (EBWQuickRef.imp
) has been located as well as the QuickRef source.
This version (REBTestDocument.imp
) was generated for the EBW 1150 by eBook Publisher v.2.2.5 (a successors to SBPublisher 1.5), despite not specially written for the ebookwise 1150. The filename ending in '_x-small.imp
' is for the EBW 1150 using the smaller (old default) font size. Please note that the filename ending in '_1200.imp
' is for the REB 1200.
