I've been reading through some of the code, especially the python generated HTML, and some of it I don't get. Take the code for the list of category browsers:

Code:
<li>
    <a title="{2} {0}" href="{3}/browse/category/{1}">
        &nbsp;
    </a>'
    <img src="{3}{src}" alt="{0}" />'
    <span class="label">{0}</span>'
</li>
This is structured strangely and it makes it difficult to style concisely, something very important considering I want one stylesheet for both desktop and mobile.

Was there a reason that the code is structured this way? does it need to remain this way or should it be changed?

I would prefer:

Code:
<li class="cat-item">
    <a title="{2} {0}" href="{3}/browse/category/{1}" id="{1}" class="cat-item-link">
        {0}
    </a>
<li>

Hey, that is a pretty good idea. I don't know if it would work well for poorly formed books since there would not be a bunch of fine control like the desktop app but for what I'm thinking about it'll work. Books from the Bean library that I downloaded in mobi but I want on my phone or tablet in epub.

I'm afraid I dont recall why it was structured like that, probably to deal with some incompatibility with a browser, most likely IE. If you can come up with a better structure that works cross browser, feel free to change it.
