EPUB creation problem with ipad

Hi all -

I am having a problem with my epub - which is validated with the IDPF tool, and the epub preflight tool. The epub looks beautiful on calibre, and also looks beautiful on ipad - but there are two blank pages after the cover page when you view the epub on the ipad. I have been reviewing my html, css and cannot see a reason why there are those two blank pages.

Any ideas from any members?

thx lots - Dia

You cannot say iPad as a catch all term. You have to say what app on the iPad you are using. You could be using a number of different apps. Bluefire is the best app for ePub on an iPad.

In addition to that - I also have something going on when I look at the validated epub in ADE. ADE, and the Nook will not recognize my bullets. They are standard <ul> bulleted list. And there is adequate bottom padding for paragraph spacing - but in ADE the paragraph padding and the bullets disappear.

This is in addition to the two blank pages coming up in ipad.


I am relatively new to this - although I have been learning things at a rapid pace - what you can and cannot do in your html / css.


thanks again -

Dia

Simple lists work in ADE.

If you want to help us, we need the code too look at. We cannot see what you have otherwise.

Best is, you make a copy of your book, toss out anything what has nothing to do with your error and attach the remains to your post.

I guess your extra blank pages are between the cover picture and the dedication.

Try to replace in the first html:
img.sgc-7 { max-width: 100% }

with:
img.sgc-7 { height: 95% }


I did not find any bulleted list (there are numbered lists...)

Well if this will not work, maybe it's time to "throw out some garbage" - css (sorry, can't resist )

mmat1 - thanks - I will replace that.

Sorry - I did mean numbered list <ol> not ul - but do you see anything that would cause my numbered list to not show up in Nook, and ADE?


thx again - Dia

I have Bluefire installed as well as iBooks and unless I specify which app I am actually using and not just installed, it's still using iPad as a generic term.
