ePub to mob-both: links don't work
Last month I uploaded to the ePub section of the MR library Counter-Attack and Other Poems by Siegfried Sassoon which I had tested on my Sony PRS T2 and on my iPad2 with ibooks. In both ereaders it works very well.
Many have of the poems have long lines, and I set it up so that when a line breaks the following text is indented. This cannot be done with old mobi, so I thought I would see if I could convert the book of poems with calibre to see if it will work in azw3/KF8.
I've just converted it, and though the text is indented after a break none of the hyperlinks in the text or in the pop-up menu work. They may take the reader to a different place, but it's the wrong place.
When I converted it with calibre I chose the 'both' option, but left every other choice at defaults except for choosing 'Kindle' as the output option. I tested it on my upgraded Kindle3, and there is an associated han file in the document folder.
I haven't the slightest idea on whether I did anything wrong when converting, or whether there is anything wrong in the original ePub file - though I know that the XHTML is valid and the ePub validates with ePubCheck and FlightCrew.
Can anyone help? I've attached both the ePub and mobi/azw3 versions.
PS I've just converted the ePub with KindleGen. The mobi version created with KindleGen does honour the hyperlinks, even footnotes, and does have the indentations where a line is broken. But it doesn't give access to the pop-up menu - the one in the toc.ncx file. Is this usual for KindleGen conversions? I guess I'd better ask in the mobi forum.
