Please also try the ebook that I just posted on your various readers. I'm curious to know if using the tags works in all cases (I think they will).

OK, I just downloaded and installed BD. BD is converting these HTML tags to the actual character when loading the source file. I looked, but can find no way to tell BD not to do this.

Well I tried your HTML samples and in BD and the Mobipocket PRC did not display properly in FBReader. The Simple-PRC worked fine. FB2 works fine as well, but the format is kinda like Simple-PRC.

Exactly what settings are you using in BD to get a PRC that displays correctly? No matter what I do, I still get little squares. I am trying this on the latest Windows version of FBReader.

It seems that FB2 is no good, as you loose the em-dashes and the grave-accent "a" character.

I'm fresh out of ideas for now. The only thing that seems to work correctly for me is to extract the HTML file from the original PRC, change the characters to HTML tags, then use MakeDoc to re-create the PRC. Since MakeDoc isn't doing any character conversion like BD, things display fine in FBReader.

I used Simple-PRC which loses the formatting so that's not a good idea.

What I could try is writing out HTML from BD and then using Mobipocket disktop to make the mobi file and try FBReader on it.

In addition, you might take the HTML file I posted (with the tags) and run that through MobiPocket Desktop, since we know that BD is doing character substitution. Please post both PRCs, so I can try them, too.

I can confirm that the original book displays fine on the iLiad MobiPocket Reader too, so the problem seems to be specific to FBReader.

OK, this shows that MobiPocket for Windows isn't messing with the source file. That is a good thing.

If you mean at the start of a pargraph, I'm not seeing those in the last two files you posted. The only time I saw them was when I was trying different character-set encodings in the HTML source. What language do you have FBReader set to? Given that it doesn't have a selection for "English", I chose "Other".

It was set to Russian. I didn't know about the language setting.

I set it to Other and then reloaded one of the books and the aaaa is gone now. Thanks.
