I'm not trying to do very complicated things, but ADE seems to fail every time. Of course, sometimes it might be me. But often it is ADE.

Ones I'm certain about:

Text in SVGs is very basic. It doesn't handle text-anchor, it doesn't handle letter-spacing.

Working around this limitations is time consuming, both because the work-around requires lots of manual tweaking, and also because of the time spent making sure that it really is ADE not handling something, and not just a syntax error.

If Adobe would actually publish a list of what ADE does and does not handle in the ePUB specifications, that would be really useful. Do they do so, and I've just missed it?

Grrr... even Mobipocket do that much.
