Any formatting options at all for the text in Kindle's instant dictionary popup?
I have been preparing an Icelandic dictionary with some success. I got the inflections working, which was my main issue. I did not use the tab2opf.py script, but instead used the boilerplate opf from the mobicon website together with an HTML-file created from a database of words with inflections and translations, I've compiled.
In order to increase usability, I would like to offer simultaneous translation to English in addition to my own language. To that end, I would prefer the output of the instant popup formatted somewhat like this:
I have been tinkering with various HTML-codes, but they all seem to only apply to the full dictionary lookup and not to the instant popup, which always render:
dictionary-word English translation other translation
Now, do any text formatting options actually exist that applies to instant popup?
I have another small problem in that a few of my dictionary lookups adds a number of sequential dictionary entries to the same instant popup, despite no apparent formatting errors and no problems with the entries in the full dictionary lookup. Can't really grok that one.
Any pointers would be most welcome.

Other than that, I'd be really interested in having the Icelandic-English dictionary in its current state myself, or at least a pointer to the source for your database that includes inflections. I only have a rather bad is-en dictionary at the moment which is auto-generated from dict.cc data and does not support any inflections. I'd be incredibly thankful if you could share your work with me here, as I can't find anything like this anywhere online.
DISCLAIMER: This is based on the manual research of an hour, after not being able to find anything on more knowledgeable sources than myself. What I'm saying might not be 100% correct, but it didn't break anything for me.
