I tried one of Adobe's sample ebooks, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It displays well in Adobe Digital Editions, including the text wrapping around images. FBReader displays it ok too, but without CSS support it does not wrap the text or style the chapter heading. In MobiPocket Reader, a MOBI version was produced but without any images and with character encoding errors.

MobiPocket Reader did better on Red Alert, another Adobe sample ebook. However, Digital Editions and MobiPocket Reader display the chapter title in different colors.

Both MobiPocket Reader and FBReader fail to produce a TOC from the toc.ncx file for both ebooks. When I tried mobigen (rather than MobiPocket Reader) the console messages indicate that the toc.ncx file is read, but no TOC was produced.

MobiPocket Reader failed to convert the only epub example I have with SVG graphics, but it is seriously non-conforming and so this might not have been due to the SVG content.
