Hi,

Looking at http://readium.org/ and getting the source, you see it is nothing more then an *incomplete* set of javascript pieces you add on to the Chrome Web-browser (and why only chrome I have no idea ...) to see some features of epub3 in the browser. This is certainly not a "reference implementation" of anything.

You would be better off helping to add HTML5 support to QtWebKit if you want most applications to actually support ePub3 (including future ebook readers).

My question is - anyone with some technical experience developing sigil considers the current code suitable to be enhanced in order to offer epub3 suport or it's better start from scratch a new project ?

Thanks in advance
