Sigil and Stanza

Hello everybody,

I'm new on this forum, but I've got a question. I'm a self-publisher (Dutch and Frisian language). I make my e-books with Sigil. My latest e-book is very well readable on my own Sony, the validation went very well: no mistakes. However, one of my readers informed me that some chapters are not displayed on her iPod en she sees a lot of empty pages. She uses the latest version of Stanza in combination with iOS5. Is this a known problem and what can I do to fix this? By the way, she cán read the book in Bluefire.

Not really Sigil, but probably an issue in the CSS or some things in the HTML. If you can post an excerpt, please do. If that is not possible, let me know.

Make it "font-weight:bold;"

Can't say if it will make a difference, though.

That alone, would make Adobe (MR) ignore the style or the stylesheet

Is there <div class="pagebreak"> spread throughout the book? Perhaps each time Stanza runs into these divs it is creating lots of blank space.

Stanza and Sigil

No pagebreaks to be found. There is a part 'newpage' though. Would that have the same effect?

This is the beginning before the text starts:

If you spot a lot of those "wpo-newpage" throughout the book, take a look in the CSS for:

div.wpo-newpage OR wpo-newpage

And copy/paste that section for us.

Hi:

Can you tell me where you are using this:

Code:
p.para
{
font-size:small;
margin-top:8em;
margin-bottom:0em;
text-align:justify;
text-indent:0em;
}
Because if you are using that a LOT, yeah, you're going to get some very oddball blanks in your pages/screens, with an 8em margin-top. I'm assuming (famous last words) that this isn't your default paragraph style, but it did jump out at me. Also, look for THIS:

Code:
span.sgc-3 {font-size: 33px; font-weight: bold;}
And see if you have any empty paragraphs with that styling that create the "gaps."

Hope that helps.

Hitch
