For your information, there is a CODE tag that you can use on MobileRead. (In the Advanced Reply the CODE button looks like a '#').

Here is an example of it being used:

Code:
<p>This is a sample paragraph</p>
<p>This is a sample second paragraph</p>

Well, readers may potentially be reading this on devices that are smaller/larger than *insert X pixels here* by *insert Y pixels here*. Or as was previously stated, the same device may be read in different orientations (portrait/landscape).

Forcing everything into a set pixel width/height will make the book quite unreadable on many devices. Then you have to take into account users with different fonts, different size text, different device settings (margins, line spacing, etc.).

Depending on who this EPUB really is geared for (PC only users?)... Depending on the exact content of your book, perhaps EPUB is just not the correct format for this book.

Would you mind giving a screenshot of one page of all these tables/images you are going for in your PDF document?

What is the hyperlink code. If you are trying to have a "clickable image" inside of a hyperlink, this is a well known bug in ADE... and since most readers are ADE based, that means that clickable images would not be a good idea (UNLESS your EPUB was just geared towards PC users reading in Sigil/Calibre/EPUBReader, but even then, you are limiting your market greatly).
