Text within Graphics in Fixed Layout ePubs
I understand for a fixed layout eBook to be accepted and sold by Amazon and Apple, you cannot have text within background images. I would like to ask how strict is this rule. I know for example it is OK to include text within the graphics on the cover and title pages.
I am making a fixed layout eBook with some simple graphics showing walking routes, with place names marked along the way. It would be a pain to separate out all the place names and position each one as a block of text. So my question is: how strict is the rule that you cannot include text within graphics? Can you get away with a small amount here and there? Particularly where it would be a lot of extra work to separate out every word of text.
