US ebook list price $26.99 (approx 17.02)
UK ebook list price 21.84 (approx $34.63)

It would seem to me that the obvious difference in asking price has to be made up somewhere even if Amazon does heavily discount.
Oh, I'm not saying there's no price difference between major publishers' titles in the US and Europe. Living in the UK I'm used to being charged inflated prices for print books. However, that's entirely independent of what's being done here. The international versions of Amazon don't even have a Kindle Store -- there's only one, centralised Kindle operation, located in America and based on American pricings. UK list prices don't enter into it.

When I had to contact them (as a Kindle customer) I went through this page...

They also have some support forums for DTP.

Thanks for that, I may have to try following up through those channels.
