Very cool, does this have the illustrations in it? And if not, do you know where I could find the illustrations and add them?

There is an issue with Ozma of Oz in Chapter 4, "Tiktok the Machine Man": the two sections that detail the contents of Tiktok's instructions are each a single non-breaking line that is roughly three times the size of the page when viewed in Calibre's E-book Viewer. It comes out so wide on my PRS-505 that I thought the text was missing until I viewed it in Calibre.

Here are the two sections:

With any luck, I'll be picking up a copy of Ozma of Oz from the library tomorrow afternoon and can see how it's supposed to be formatted but I presume that they're supposed to look like cards.

It's quite easy in a forum, but I have no idea how to force this in an epub:

No it doesn't but I too would like to see them.

I also discovered a typo in a chapter title in The Marvelous Land of Oz: "The Scarecrow Appeals to Glenda the Good". The correct spelling, used in the rest of the chapter and indeed everywhere else so far (I was stumped when I got to the problem I posted above), is "Glinda".

I found quite a few more errors and have started making corrections. I also figured out how to add Tiktok's card text as cards (though I'm still guessing on the formatting of the second care) but they still display wider than the screen on my 505 regardless of zoom setting. Any advice?

Does your ebook reader have a landscape setting? I know Kindle has both portrait and landscape orientations, but not if other ereaders have both. The only other option I could see would be to somehow reformat them by trial and error til they appear properly within the screen width.

It should be easy in an ePUB too, just put the text in a <div> with border.

Sorry it took me a while to get back to this.

I was looking for the source files to see if i still have the original; I don't.

Please post the corrected book here, if Nate can't do it himself.

Regarding the formatting, you can post what you have so far in our Workshop forum.

I was going to have a try, but I don't feel like digging into all the calibre-digested classes...

There is also an error at the end of "Ozma of Oz".

File L.Frank_Baum_Oz_Omnibus_split_80.html contains raw text of the Gutenberg book ending.
