Calibre added CSS

I prefer ReallyNo.2 with the second size setting and left justified as opposed to whatever the T1 uses as "original". So I added this to the common options:
Code:
@font-face {
  font-family: serif;
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: normal;
  src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/ReallyNo2LTW1G-Regular.otf);
}
@font-face {
  font-family: serif;
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: italic;
  src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/ReallyNo2LTW1G-Italic.otf);
}
@font-face {
  font-family: serif;
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: normal;
  src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/ReallyNo2LTW1G-Bold.otf);
}
@font-face {
  font-family: serif;
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: italic;
  src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/ReallyNo2LTW1G-BoldItalic.otf);
}

body { 
margin-left: 0em;
margin-right: 0em;
font-size: medium;
font-family: serif;
text-align: left;
}
First I put back ALL the defaults in the common options and then used it on a book "The Inquisitor's Apprentice" which has alot of embedded fonts, like "kind's handwriting", "grownup's handwriting", "signs" and so forth.

It almost worked perfectly! The fonts and formating were all retained(except body) and no more false or nonexisting italics.

But now the chapter titles are irritatingly highlighted! I wonder what I did wrong?

Could it be that your chapter titles are hyperlinks, which always seem to be highlighted on the T1?

Darnit! It appears you're right! Now that you've opened my blind eyes, I have found other books in my collection with that issue. With most of my books the TOC is highlighted but not the chapter titles.

I wonder if there is a way(using the common options of Calibre) to make the chapter-hyperlinks "one way". I don't need to tap a chapter title in the middle of a book to get back to the TOC and some ebooks have really fancy chapter titles that just look better unhighlighted.

Selective/partial removal of html anchor tags sounds a tall order for an automated process. There's always Calibre's Tweak epub option or Sigil if you want to remove them manually. A bit tedious, though.

You can easily un-highlight with css, without removing the actual a tags. Try this:

a:link { text-decoration:none; background-color:transparent; }
a:visited { text-decoration:none; background-color:transparent; }
a:hover { text-decoration:none; background-color:transparent; }
a:active { text-decoration:none; background-color:transparent; }

ps. Also, adding "!important" to the above might help overriding whatever other css settings.
