I didn't know about the lack of CSS support; I just started to read up on the MOBI format. How is it handled then, by using plain HTML attributes, and styling text with
Code:
<i>italic</i>
instead of
Code:
<span style="font-style:italic;">italic</span>
?
Exactly, everything is is the HTML itself like the old days of 3.2. Yes Harry's info is a bit dated but mobi format is also a bit dated. The tutorials on the mobipocket web site are also a bit dated. Amazon has a bit more up to date data on AZW which is mobi plus Amazon DRM but in fact Amazon no longer encourages direct coding but rather conversion of ePub.
