Yes, but I can say with some assuredness that much of what is in the ePUBZenGarden does not work in most readers. Unfortunate, but true. Love what they do with the place, though.

Just a quick note for the OP:

This sounds a lot like what Wil Wheaton did with Just a Geek; have you looked at that? The book is broken up into chapters, each of which is a narrative with blog posts quoted as they become relevant. Worked pretty well, but I did notice that on my Kobo Glo, the blog sections were usually long enough that they'd force a page/screen break; they didn't just flow inline. (And that's with pretty basic div.blog formatting.)

Actually, I now use RELATIVE measurements, having discovered that the Fire HD and especially the 8.9 inch tablet don't seem to zoom images the way older Kindles do. So I go width="95%" or in the case of a "sort" or other icon, something like width="10%". This seems to render just fine on my Nook as well.

What are you doing for the K7 devices/fallback, as that won't work for those?
