well, the Kindle doesn't support ePub so a Kindle simulation will do no good. There are lots of reading applications that will work, depending on what computer you are using, Windows, mac, Unix? Something else? It is hard for us to guess. I suggest you look on the wiki we have here. It will provide all the answers you have. Note that ADE is generally a good test, see the wiki. But there is variation in all readers and none will guarantee that it looks well on another device.

I have another issue. I am trying to do a table of contents, so that a reader can just click on whatever chapter they want, and it takes them there.

Does anyone know how to do this, where it actually goes to the right spot??

You may be better served to ask these questions in the ePub forum.
