Good, but there's still a lot of air between pargraphs. The client likes it.
The client likes it? Why? Also, if you are going to get paid to produce an eBook, make it look good and make the code underneath look good as well. All you are doing is using poor code and cheating the client. You don't kludge something together that you are getting paid to do. You do it correctly with CSS and proper coding..

Why is it publishers are giving the job of making eBooks to people who have no clue? This does explain a lot about why we have poor formatting and many errors.
