Indeedy, as do many things these days. I've not tried it, but can't we just print to something like Primo PDF out of Sigil?

Of course, this is completely OT now...stupid columns. Which ended up being the LEAST of my concerns, the bloody spans from MS Word were absolutely horrific. I had to strip the formatting and then re-do every book. What a freaking nightmare.

I've played around with some CSS and created a rough Cast of Characters type page in a simple two column layout.

This was created in Sigil, and displays correctly in ADE, Calibre, Sony reader software. Ironically, Sigil for some reason doesn't display it properly unless you resize the book view narrow enough.

I have no Idea how amazon would handle it, although what I came up didn't exactly require rocket science.

Screenshot of how it looks in ADE:

I added a body style with a width 30em
that keeps it from spreading out.
So it looks as you can wrap your style in with another, that keeps it contained

I don't know what you mean because for me in Sigil it displays correctly, whether the view is narrow or wide. This is Sigil 0.2.0 (the latest version). I think the 30/70 division doesn't look nice in wide view but that's besides the question.

I'm also using Sigil 0.2.0, so I don't quite know what's happening, most likely a QtWebKit rendering bug.

The 30/70 split was just an example. You can use any combination that adds up to 100%. Heck, you don't even have to limit yourself to two columns if you want more...
