Talking What was the glitch in J.K. Rowling's eBook?

See the BBC report:
J.K. Rowling's new eBook suffered a formatting glitch that meant many people had to re-download a corrected version.

Does anyone know what the glitch was? I don't want to get caught out by the same thing!

The font sizes were too small. It only affected the US version of the book, not the British version.

What, did they put in a specific font size override in the body text or something?

Naughty!

I'd be interested to see a snippet of the CSS then. I'd also be just as interested to see Rowling fans squinting at their iPad and shouting "Engorgio!"
