Post Marryat, Frederick: The Little Savage v1 22 dec 2008

Captain Frederick Marryat was born July 10 1792, and died August 8 1848. He retired from the British navy in 1828 in order to devote himself to writing. In the following 20 years he wrote 26 books, many of which are among the very best of English literature, and some of which are still in print.

Marryat had an extraordinary gift for the invention of episodes in his stories. He says somewhere that when he sat down for the day’s work, he never knew what he was going to write. He certainly was a literary genius.

“The Little Savage” was published in 1848, the twenty-sixth book to flow from Marryat’s pen. It was completed after his death by a member of his family. It is intended for children, and its religious overtones are in contrast to Marryat’s other works. He was far from irreligious, but this book is definitely in a different style.

This e-book was transcribed by Nick Hodson.

Have fun!

PS: I have used the cover of a Classics Illustrated Comicbook for this one!

This imp is not working. Please do not download till revised by the master himself (nrapallo).

I didn't understand a word of what Nick was saying. The imp he created does work, though and I have put it here. I definitely didn't put in any strange characters . Thanks, Nick

Wow, nice introduction....

I know the answer to this problem. It's come up before here. The coding of that .html is very non-standard in it's use of &#code; where code is a number under 30. It would be best to change all of them to their named html characters to be safe i.e. #20 to space, #24 & #25 to single quotes and #28 & #29 to double quotes.

The offending character code is &# 20; (just remove the space I put between the # and 20). In ASCII, 32 is a space and I think this code was meant to be a 'space' but the original encoder used the hexadecimal representation which is 0x20 i.e. 32.

SOLUTION: Just replace all &# 20; with a space or   and rebuild the 1150 Grayscale-HalfVGA .imp and then the 1200 Color-FullVGA .imp.

EDIT: my 1150 .imp attachment has been deleted since the .imp in post #1 now works! I left the (colour) REB1200 .imp though.

Thanks Nick. I just put your imp up. Can't comprehend what your saying, though. That is way too technical for poor me. I am quite sure that there was no &# 20; in my and Mister Hodson's original. I will have a look at that, though.

Thanks again.

Edit:Got it now.There were a lot of mdashes, quotes and apostrophes and they were defined in numbers. I got them replaced and it works fine now. I'll know for next time. Thanks again
