HTML to EPUB Inline Text/Image Issue

I have been waiting to see if this issue gets fixed by various EPUB Reader applications, but so far no luck. Mainly, ADE. I wonder if this is something from Calibre's side to fix this issue.

So my issue is converting image and text containing table. For instance, below will result in truncated image on ADE, or text overlapping on the image etc.

<tbody><tr><td class="FIGURE-COL1" valign="top"><img src="da1c1ff2.png" height="446" width="550" border="0"></td></tr><tr><td class="FIGURE-COL2" valign="top"><div class="P"><div class="P"><span class="emph_BIT">FIGURE 1.2.</span> <span class="emph_B">Blah.</span>
Blah Blah Blah.</div></div></td></tr></tbody>

I know this is not issue with calibre side itself but unfortunately so many readers (Android) just cannot handle this, but I have so many books that have similar lines.

Does anyone have any idea how to overcome this issue?

Solved

Thank you the reply.

Linealize table will break the other tables i.e. actual table formatted data I had in the book.

But I found the issue and fixed it.

For future reference, for anyone having the same issue. The stylesheet created by Calibre somehow specified height of the table cell. I chose output EPUB target as Tablet, so presumably should not have done any rescaling but still had that height specified. Calibre EBook reader somehow ignores it or smart enough to know the height is not enough to display all contents within the cell so it still showed up fine. But ADE did not. Therefore, created weird appearance of text over the images or images truncated etc.

So all I had to do was go into the style sheet in the corresponding element (mine was .calibre23) just deleted height section.

I wonder if Calibre has option to actually set so that it will not insert this. Perhaps there is, but I could not find one.
