jpg as a cover, how to adjust it as a 1st page?

Hello,
I had aproblem that when converting one of word doc tempalates to HTML, it would save that format. so I did a workaround and changed the whole 1st page into a sinlge jpg and added it as a cover.

so far so good.

now, when converting it into an epub in calibre I see that the jpg is only on half of the 1st page. how can I make it to automatically adjust itself as a whole page to whatever screen size the user is using?

thanks,
Shlomo

you can adjust the cover in your CSS file image Height = 100%

If you are not sure about how to go about doing that try this Program for editing ePubs.

Add this to your template.CSS file. (you can edit it in either a text editor like textwrangler or in dreamweaver, something which saves as UTF-8)
PHP Code:
.image {
     
margin-top1em;
     
margin-bottom1em;
     
margin-left1.2em;
     
text-aligncenter;
     
max-height100%

Then open your Cover.XHTML (or whatever it's called and change the code to match mine

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
        <title>Cover</title>
        <link href="template.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="cover">
            <div class="image">
                <img src="images/Cover.jpg" alt="Cover.jpg" height="100%" />
    </div>
    </div>
    </body>
</html>
