Yes, I needed the div, but only to center the image on the screen in ADE/sony.

I was able to remove some default settings (height="100%" width="100%" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet") to trim it down, but I don't know if there is a device out there that HAS to have them. If you want to change the size, not full screen, you will have to have a height=x%

Quote:
<div style="margin:0 auto; text-align:center">
<svg viewBox="0 0 300 380" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
<image width="300" height="380" xlink:href="../Images/cover.jpg"></image>
</svg>
</div>
Unfortunately after more experimenting I found it works in Sigil, Sony, and ADE like you said, but the older kindle's, Kindle iOS (and Firefox ePubreader) don't see SVG at all - only the PW and Fires.

You do want
Code:
preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet"
in order to make sure the aspect ratio is kept.

What does happens when you convert to KF8 and Mobi using Calibre?

I checked and it said that (preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet") was the "default" value so I took it out. But, it doesn't really take up a lot of extra space...it is just one file, so I will put all the defaults back in just to CYA.

When I use Calibre to convert (instead of Kindle Previewer) some different things happen:

convert to AZW3 - as expected, Kindle previewer doesn't even allow selection of the devices that aren't kf8. No other differences noted.

convert to mobi - it shows one of the two svg pages, but the dimensions are all screwed up. The aspect ratio is correct, but the size is huge. Both svg pages had the default values (height="100%" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet") defined.

I'm pretty sure it does - Previewer uses kindlegen for conversion (by drag and drop - cool!), and then shows how it will look in the different devices. The older kindle's and Kindle iOS don't see the SVG pages at all when I use Kindle Previewer - only the PW and Fires see it.

If you are just trying to get it to look right in Sigil, then it doesn't seem something to worry about. Clearly its a bug in Qt5, that one day will hopefully be fixed. And as the usual caveat goes - what you see in Sigil is not what you will see on all ereaders...

Understood - and I agree. I was trying to figure out how to get the image to work properly even under html5 when we can no longer use the % in the scale attribute...just trying to think ahead. If I can get it figured out now - in a way that works for both...then I don't have to worry about it later...and when others have the same question I can point them to this thread.
