Yes. The resulting epub works fine in ebook-reader, and FbReader on a PC. Today I've opened the ePub in FbReader and Aldiko on an Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0). It opened in both places, but worked better in FbReader than in Aldiko.

I've also tried it in iBooks on an iPad, and it worked very well there. Better than in the android readers. By "better" I mean that there are fewer empty or almost-empty pages, and just flicking through the pages made more sense (I don't understand why this should be different across readers, but I've seen the same effect before).

But it fails on my PRS-T1.

I wonder if it will work in the previous generation of Sony readers...? I had a PRS-950, but it died the eInk-death that sometimes afflict the ebook readers.

Right. I remember reading something about that. But as you said, the individual HTML pages here are quite small.

Thanks for your help, so far.
