Font changing sizes...

I'm having a peculiar problem with *one* book that I'm reading. Every once in a while, I press the back button and for some reason the font shrinks down in size. And when it does that, I can't seem to restore it back to my regular size - but only on that book. If I go to another book in my library, the font is the size I choose and I can change it - but when I go back to the first book, it's still tiny.

And every once in a while, I somehow manage to restore it to slightly larger, but I'm not even sure how I did it or how to fix it when it happens again - it seems random.

Has anybody had this happen or have a solution?

What happens if you go to the start of the book, gou out to the library and the into the book?

It sound like a broken book file. Maybe the html is broken and the reader gets confused.

If I do that, it still stays the small size!

Although earlier today I pushed the button "up" instead of "left" to go back a page and the font increased again.

I do think it's something with the html of that file, since it's not translating over to other files. I'm just torn between finding it annoying and amusing

Is this book a Mobi format book or an HTML file?

In some sense a Mobi format book is an HTML file. But I think that the HTML code in a MobiPocket file is more sensitive to parsing errors since you have the filepos attribute there.

It's a Mobi format book (DRM from fictionwise)
