Shackleton, Sir Ernest: South! (Illustrated), v1, 6 Sept 2009.

Inspired by Patricia's post and ebook creation of this same ebook, namely:

Quote:

South!
The Story of Shackleton’s Last Expedition
1914–1917
By Sir Ernest Shackleton C.V.O.
(1874–1922)

An account of Antarctic exploration, the final voyage of the Endurance, and a heroic effort to overcome a variety of disasters.
The text was from PG and I have added a number of the original illustrations.
This ebook was pre-processed by GuteBook, my free software that anyone can use to create ebooks for their ebook reader. It uses calibre v0.6 to produce the .epub ebook (as well as the _source.epub for Non-Sony readers). It's source was http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/5199 and GuteBook was supplied with just Etext-No. 5199 and options to accomplish this!

This ebook was prepared from the HTML source code as fetched/filtered/fixed by GuteBook and then MANUALLY intervened by me to fix the List of Illustrations images (all images are now included), add styles to center headings, as well as employ some of Patrica's fixes regarding ditto marks and the ASCII whaling chart used in Appendix I.

Gutebook took only a few minutes to download and fix the ebook, but then to get the right look-and-feel, I spent about an hour tweaking things that initially broke under GuteBook. However, when done I could easily re-generate this .epub ebook as well as other ebook formats like .mobi/.prc, .lrf, .lit, and .imp, at the same time.

EDIT: thanks to ShellShock, I've uploaded a version 1.1 that properly implements elements required by the EPUB standard. If you're having issues, then for sure use this version.

Enjoy!

Links do not work in ADE

Thanks for this--Shackleton is a hero of mine so I will enjoy reading this.

I thought you would like to know that there is a bug in many versions of Adobe ADE (as used in e.g., the Sony readers) which means the links in your Contents and List Of Illustrations do not work.

To fix them:

In the href, prefix bookmark names with a letter, e.g.,

<a href="mypage.htm#P001">

and then in the anchor is refers to, add an id attribute with the appropriate bookmark:

<a name="P001" id="P001">

Thanks for your suggestions.

It seems that ADE may be STRICTLY enforcing the EPUB standard (much like epubcheck would do) and then REFUSES to implement any depreciated support. I feel their focus is too narrow-minded, just like their inability to turn-off page numbering (which is NOT part of the EPUB standard, but their chosen implementation of it... oh, well! )

Per the EPUB standard, the naming of anchor names MUST now start with a letter and the XHTML can no longer use the <a name=> tag in favour of the <a id=> or embedded "id=" tag, so your suggestions are in fact required to comply with the EPUB standard. As a result, I've manually edited my .epubs and used a series of simple reg-ex's to implement your suggestions. I've uploaded the version 1.1 .epubs for your (or anyone else's) use.

Enjoy!
