Abbreviations are back in. This past abbreviation-bereft month, I missed seeing at a glance all that metadata densely grouped in narrow columns. Sounding indicative of the full word or phrase, abbreviations are almost as human-readable and often more human-readable than full word or phrase — because without abbreviations I can't see at a glance metadata off to the right of the visible portion displayed in field box or column display, requiring an extra step of scrolling or cursor-hovering-for-tooltip. Also, comparative searches are still doable on those rare occasions I need them, with some attention to pairing abbreviation and full word/phrase.

Fixing formatting problems with word-processor is a quick and easy baseline method — I do this in practical mode. But I am gradually learning to work at code level too, because it is more precise — I do this in learning mode.

In learning mode, I like using Edit Book. It helps a lot to read the Editing E-Books section of user manual first, and work with freshly downloaded retail book formats, not yet converted, without a multitude of formatting problems — rather than starting with known problem-plagued formats, which in hindsight was a mistake I made last month. Then remove unused CSS rules, check book, see what is what, refer to CSS and HTML tutorials as necessary, and fix things.

Those are generalities. I don't want to discuss specific formatting nuts and bolts in this thread, since the thread's scope is broader level. My bad — by asking specific nuts and bolts technical questions here a few weeks ago, I violated my own scope.

Digging a hole in the woods with a spade is indeed an alternate method. ((Edit: deleted a paragraph examining potential hazards of that method. Though thread scope is broad, it is not quite that broad.))

Quick note of thanks (and a bump) to unboggling and all the other users who have contributed so much valuable information in this thread.

This would be a great sticky.

Forum policy does not allow for any help to be provided here on removing DRM and related issues. You need to ask where you got the plugin.
