Curving text layout
I have a copy of Alice in Wonderland that in chapter three has a paragraph where the text curves like a puff of smoke.
I have tried to replicate this??? The code uses widows and orphans but it dosent seem to do anything in Sigil.
Not having any success I tried saving the original Alice file in Sigil as a new file without changing a thing but this altered the layout of the curved text and it no longer curves.
How did this work on the original file? Does anyone know how to replicate this in Sigil?

I tried changing all instances of

This is an issue with Tidy. Tidy is still used for formatting text. Unfortunately, even when only used for formatting it still does some processing such as stripping what it feels are empty tags.

"inline-block" is not a supported value in ePub 2.1, so you shouldn't expect it to work.
Have you checked my copy of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" in the library forum? (it's not a puff of smoke, but a mouse tail...)
