Two pictures side by side in ADE

Hi,
I try to place two pictures side by side in ADE. Im use sigil as epub editor. Those pictures are in separate HTML files.

Code:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <title>Za_Chiny_e</title>
  
<style type="text/css">
html, body {width:100%;}
  body, p, div, img {margin:0, padding:0;}
  img {display:block;max-width:100%;max-height:600px;}
</style>
</head>

<body>
  <h1 style="padding:0;margin:0;" title="Mapa"></h1>

  <div><img alt="" class="height" src="../Images/china1.jpg" /></div>
</body>
</html>
code is same for both HTMLs. In eink reader pictures renders ok (no white page after) but ADE adds white page next to it (see pictures). Anyone have idea what happening? Thanks for all help.

Separate HTML files = separate pages.

There's nothing you can do in the book about it. At most, there might be a reader option to show a double page layout, but that's outside Sigil's scope.

Now, if you put both images in the same HTML file, it could be something like:

Code:
img {display:inline;max-width:50%;max-height:600px;}
Code:
<div><img alt="" class="height" src="../Images/china1.jpg" /><img alt="" class="height" src="../Images/china2.jpg" /></div>

combine images

Would it not be simpler and effective to combine the two images into one?

I second the recommendation that Jellby gave.

Sometimes this also occurs when you have a large map which spans across two pages from a scanned book. The scans of each half may not match up, so it is impossible to combine both images into a single map.

On a smaller device it would be nearly impossible to get anything useful out of the map when it gets resized, so having the maps split in half would act like a "zoomed in" version (although in this specific case it looks like a very tiny map of China).

It's very easy to adjust them to match.

Any map will bd hard to read on a small device. The best that can be done is to view it in landscape. Most readers can zoom an illistration.

I dont belive anyone will be trying to navigate from such a map.

I have attached a real life example. It was impossible to get a scan of the middle of the map (due to the binding of the book). Therefore, it makes it impossible to merge both maps together (you would be missing a strip in Western USA).

Yes, but for those devices that do not have zoom, and do not have a large resolution, a map can be better handled with two halves.

Indeed.... but an unreadable thumbnail of a chart/map/table destroys the whole point of passing information that the author intended.
