Opinions needed on a WIP ebook

I just uploaded a title that I need help on. It has quite a few pictures, and the pictures have captions. Sadly, they're formatted as tables.

I'm probably going to have to edit the Mobipocket edition, but I don't know about the Epub one. If the captions and pictures are good the way they are then I won't change them. If they're not then I will create a newer Epub version along with the Mobipocket one.

I'd appreciate it if I could get some feedback on how this title looks on various devices. Thanks.

Epub
Mobi

Ok, I loaded it on my PDA.

I'd advice to put all the captions underneath the images. The caption at the second image (the first with the text beside the image) is:

Pau
Call
SUI
UP,
pen
and
was
pap


See attachment for a mobipocket desktopreader screencap...


For the rest, looks like a nice book to read!

It looks like you're running MobiReader. Did you know that you can scroll the table?

That screenshot is made from my desktop... And horizontally scrolling makes reading impossible (at least for me)

But why do some images have their caption underneath and others on the side?

(and the horizontal scrolling doesn't work in the desktop reader)



Edit: I spotted two mistakes:

At the end of chapter 2.2: "His flight in Freedoni 7 was followed by Gus"
And the the previous/next buttons don't work

I think the position of the captions is the same as in the original paper book.

I figured out an easy fix, so I'll upload a new version in a few minutes.

The problem was cause by 2 td tags following a tr (table row) tag in some of the tables. I inserted a tr tag before the second td tag. This forced the caption into a row different from the image.
