Where can I go to see a sample CSS that would cover some or all of these items? For example, dropcaps. Here is a start of a chapter:
<p class="flush"><span class=dropcaps>I</span> began
And here is the CSS for dropcaps:
Alas, both the e-ink Kindle (which supposedly doesn't support KF8 standard) and the Kindle Fire (which supposedly does) render the dropcap exactly the same. The large letter "I" appears on a line by itself, followed by the rest of that opening sentence, beginning with "began". I don't know whether this is a flaw in my CSS or in the KF8 instructions/standard.
(I was pleased to see that the "flush" CSS worked as expected.... Or could my result come from the combination of float: left and flush?)
