so is this a genuine issue or a "how many angels on a pinhead" debate ?
As I said, the problem isn't restricted to Sigil. Calibre also has this rendering problem. Which is precisely why i'm trying to determine the cause: so I can know whether I need to worry about this rendering issue translating to ereaders, and how to avoid it. In any case, I'm not arguing with anyone here—it's not a debate; I'm simply asking a question.
I've attached a sample file. While I was creating the sample, I noticed that when there was only a single paragraph in the document, it rendered without problems. Only when further paragraphs were added did the right-margin go to the dogs.
