Thank you for your response. You can find some samples at http://code.google.com/p/epub-samples/.

Kobo at least supports vertical writing in epubs. As for other 3.0 features, I do not know. I tried some, but did not find any other feature that worked.

I changed the extension to kepub.epub and the Table of Contents shows now.

Since I would also like to use popup annotations epub.kepub seems the way to go for me. What held me back up to now was the need to set the point-information at every node in order to enable annotations and highlights. Thanks again for the helpful input.
