Device: iRiver Story HD Basic
Problem with chapter headings from Caliber 0.8.66 onwards

Hi,

I've been using Calibre since version 0.8.40 to produce epubs on my own, and everything worked perfectly. I use an iRiver Story HD (Basic) and a Sony PRS-T1. My conversion output format ist epub for generic e-ink devices.

But starting with Calibre 0.8.66 all the chapter headings are bold & UNDERLINED instead of bold only on the iRiver (on the iRiver only, that is).
I checked the stylesheet.css files in the epub files and found that from Calibre 0.8.66 (definititely!) onwards they are generated differently. Using the same ZIP-source for the conversion, I get the following:

Calibre 0.8.66:
[snip]
.calibre {
background-color: white;
display: block;
font-size: 1em;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: 5pt;
margin-right: 5pt;
margin-top: 0;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0
}
.calibre1 {
font-weight: bolder
}
.calibre10 {
display: block
}
.calibre11 {
display: block;
font-family: "Times New Roman";
font-size: 2em;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 1.2;
margin-bottom: 18pt;
margin-left: 21.55pt;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 12pt;
text-indent: -21.55pt
}
.calibre12 {
color: inherit;
cursor: inherit;
line-height: 1.2;
text-decoration: inherit
}
.calibre13 {
line-height: 1.2
}
.calibre14 {
display: block;
font-family: "Times New Roman";
font-size: 1.29167em;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 1.2;
margin-bottom: 12pt;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 24pt;
page-break-after: avoid
}
.calibre15 {
font-style: italic
}
.calibre16 {
text-decoration: underline
}
[....]


The corresponding html-file with a heading looks like this ("Lektion 1 ..." is displayed in large, but not underlined letters, as I want it) :

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta content="Microsoft Office HTML Filter 2.0" name="Generator"/>
<meta content="Microsoft Word 9" name="Originator"/>
<title>My Title</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
<link href="stylesheet.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="page_styles.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
</head>
<body vlink="purple" link="blue" class="calibre">
<h1 id="calibre_toc_2" class="calibre11"><a name="_Toc331864474" class="calibre12" id="_Toc331864474"><span lang="EN" class="calibre13">Lektion 1: Einleitung</span></a></h1>

[....]



But now Calibre 0.8.67 produces this:

[snip]
.calibre {
background-color: white;
display: block;
font-size: 1em;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: 5pt;
margin-right: 5pt;
margin-top: 0;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0
}
.calibre1 {
font-weight: bolder
}
.calibre10 {
display: block;
font-family: "Times New Roman";
font-size: 2em;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 1.2;
margin-bottom: 18pt;
margin-left: 21.55pt;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 12pt;
text-indent: -21.55pt
}
.calibre11 {
line-height: 1.2
}
.calibre12 {
display: block;
font-family: "Times New Roman";
font-size: 1.29167em;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 1.2;
margin-bottom: 12pt;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 24pt;
page-break-after: avoid
}
.calibre13 {
font-style: italic
}
.calibre14 {
text-decoration: underline
}
.calibre15 {
display: block;
font-family: "Times New Roman";
font-size: 1em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 6pt;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 12pt;
page-break-after: avoid
}
.calibre16 {
display: block;
font-family: "Times New Roman";
font-size: 1.66667em;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 1.2;
margin-bottom: 12pt;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 30pt;
page-break-after: avoid
}
[and so on]

The corresponding html-file with a heading looks like this ("Lektion 1 ..." is displayed in large, but UNDERLINED letters, as I want it) :

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta content="Microsoft Office HTML Filter 2.0" name="Generator"/>
<meta content="Microsoft Word 9" name="Originator"/>
<title>My Title</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
<link href="stylesheet.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<link href="page_styles.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
</head>
<body vlink="purple" link="blue" class="calibre">
<h1 id="calibre_toc_2" class="calibre10"><a name="_Toc331864474" class="calibre11" id="_Toc331864474"><span lang="EN" class="calibre11">Lektion 1: Einleitung</span></a></h1>
[...]

Do you notice the differences in the usage of "text-decoration: inherit" and the different generation of .calibre* styles?
Maybe this causes the iRiver the behave erratically.
I had to fall back to Calibre 0.8.65, which works perfectly for me.

Please note again: The Sony PRS-T1 and the Calibre ebook viewer are not affected by this, only the iRiver, but the support of iRiver is literally non-existent.

I'm not an expert on CSS, so I need your advice.

Please help. Any ideas? Is there any tweak available?

Thanks,

Froebisch.

You can use an appropriate rule in extra css to override it. Something like

a { text-decoration: none }

or more specifically:

h1 a { text-decoration: none }
