Fixed layout epub

I was wanting to learn a little more about this in comparison to a regular epub. What are the differences and is there a standard structure for creating a fixed layout epub for apple?

EDIT:

my apologies I forgot to mention how can you do a fixed in a SINGLE page spread and not a double paged horizontal view.

The problem you are going to run into is every current flavor of fixed layout ePub is not actually ePub and it's all different. So what works for iBooks won't work for nook. Because it's not a standard (in ePub 2), all the implementators have come up with their own method.

but Im not building this for the nook Im building this for the ipad. Also, as I edited fixed is now out because fix does a spread and Im just trying to figure out how to do each as a full page. Only other method I can think of is code everyone as a single html file to achieve this.

If you're building exclusively for iBooks, you're probably better off using iBooks Author and avoiding messing with the markup at all.

Incidentally, the one-page versus two-page spread depends on the orientation of the book and on whether you have set the orientation-lock option in the com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml file. See:

for details, or download a copy of the iBookstore Asset Guide.
