And moreover, people change font sizes and font-family on their eInk readers, so what you're looking at on your 6" is more than likely NOT exactly what a reader will see on his or her machine. Checking to see if your book "looks good" within certain fixed, precise dimensions is fooling yourself into thinking that more than 1 out of ten readers will see it displayed exactly as you've designed it. Given that, why not just satisfy yourself with the ballpark capabilities built into Sigil?
I did also say to use ADE (desktop) which will be a different size then a 6" Reader. But if you can make it look good in a number of different sizes, then it's a go (IMHO).

Because sometimes Sigil displays differently then ADE.
