Anyone else have problems with Duokan rendering ePubs incorrectly

I bought the 2002 edition of "Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution" from Amazon. I managed to get the Topaz book decrypted and took the resulting file and dumped it into Sigil and saved it as an ePub.

Each Chapter has the chapter title and name centered in bold with a nice graphic. On my wife's nook, the chapter titles display properly in the ePub.

On Duokan, the chapter name and title are off to the left, they're bold, but the same size font as the text body, and the graphic is not displayed at all.

Has anyone else seen behavior like this with ePubs? Should I be looking at fbKindle to get better rendering?

It sounds like a conversion artifact. Are the chapter headings centered in Sigil?

They are. And they're centered on the nook.

How is your wife's Kindle displaying ePubs without Duokan?

If you mean the "Topaz converted to ePub" version looks different in Duokan than the original Topaz version does on your wife's Kindle... then yeah... that's to be expected, and has nothing to do with Duokan. That just comes with Topaz conversion.

Sorry, I meant on my wife's nook. The ePub looks fine in Calibre, and looks fine on the nook, but looks bad in Duokan.

Sorry about that.

Duokan isn't showing bullet lists properly either. No bullet in front of them. They display properly on Calibre, the nook and Fbreader for Windows.

Ah, I understand.

I don't have a very recent version of Duokan, but with the few epubs I tried on it, I was never impressed enough with it's rendering to actually consider using it for anything other than just occasionally noodling around. I just choose to convert to mobi and be done with it.

When I finish cleaning up this ePub, I probably will just do a Mobi conversion. The topaz file was full of tons of svg graphics, most of which were completely unnecessary.
