I'm glad you found it useful! This guide is my way of giving back something in return for all the help I got here.

Your guide has 3 main sections:
1) general informations about Html, CSS and ePub format;
2) Which is related to Sigil and;
3) Advanced formatting tasks.

So I think it would be more logical to keep the subsection "Back to Sigil: Code View vs. Book View" with the main Sigil section.
That section is there on purpose: the idea was , first, to show that you really need to write HTML code to format your book and after that, show how inadequate is BV for even the simplest tasks.

That's a good idea, I will have a look at it and maybe post an epub version in 30-45 days.
