2 column mode

Found this "feature" today. When zooming in to the smallest font-size sometimes (depending on the book) the Odyssey will switch to 2-column mode and sometimes not. On some books it will switch to 2-column only in landscape mode. Anyone know what is going on there?

Attached is a picture of the same book (The Iliad & The Odyssey) that came with the reader - the one in spanish does not do 2 column mode, the english one does in the smallest and 2nd smallest font size setting. Feature or bug? And what do I have to change to force 2 column mode in epubs at smaller zoomlevels?

Thank you. The best thing is - you already have the files on your Odyssey.

It's an ade feature.

Should work with any epub with the "ade page template".
that is "page template.xhtml" with stuff looking like that :

Ok, found the problem. The page-template is techinically inside the spanish epub, but it never gets referenced, my bad for thinking that if a file exists inside a epub that it actually gets used. I use the german epub of ilias and odyssey as reference (this one also has "built in" 2 column mode). This is main01.htm:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
  <title>Ilias und Odyssee</title>
  <link href="resources/stylesheet.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
  <link href="resources/page-template.xpgt" type="application/vnd.adobe-page-template+xml" rel="stylesheet" />
</head>
<body>
<div class="body">
<div id="p1" class="section">
<div class="text">
  <h1 class="author">Homer</h1>
  <h1 class="title">Ilias</h1>
</div></div></div>
</body>
</html>
The spanish main1.htm (truncated after the body begins). Notice between the blue lines, no page-template link:
Code:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <head>
    <title>La Iliada</title>
    <meta name="generator" content="pdftohtml 0.36"/>
    <meta name="author" content="Homero"/>
    <meta name="date" content="2003-06-05T13:00:24+00:00"/>
    <meta name="subject" content="eBooket"/>
    <meta content="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type"/>
    <link href="stylesheet.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
    <style type="text/css">
		@page { margin-bottom: 5.000000pt; margin-top: 5.000000pt; }</style>
  </head>
  <body class="calibre">[...]
after copying the red from german epub it works as desired - 2 column mode on very small font-size:
Code:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <head>
    <title>La Iliada</title>
    <meta name="generator" content="pdftohtml 0.36"/>
    <meta name="author" content="Homero"/>
    <meta name="date" content="2003-06-05T13:00:24+00:00"/>
    <meta name="subject" content="eBooket"/>
    <meta content="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type"/>
    <link href="stylesheet.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
    <link href="resources/page-template.xpgt" type="application/vnd.adobe-page-template+xml" rel="stylesheet" />
    <style type="text/css">
		@page { margin-bottom: 5.000000pt; margin-top: 5.000000pt; }</style>
  </head>
  <body class="calibre">[...]
The stylesheet and page-template are both stylesheets? No? Would be nice to filter the bare minimum out of that to ADD to the stylesheet.css - and only change the stylesheet, and not each and every html file.

Sorry for the details, for someone working with epubs regularily I must seam like a Dodo bird. Did not know that I actually have to remember html coding just to enjoy my ereaders undocumented features ....

And do other ereaders do that too - displaying the 2 column automatically?

Ok here it is.

That is the english version that always worked with 2 column mode on the Cybook Odyssey.

edit: works at least on the smallest and 2nd smallest font size.

works fine on the T1.
showing 2 columns with the smallest font size in portrait mode. When in landscape mode it shows 2 columns with the smallest three font sizes.

Thank you for testing that out. I like it - it puts more words on a page and you don't constantly lose the line you are on.
