ADE doesn't like hrefs in epubs produced by Calibre

There appears to be a bug in the Sony PRS-505 with hrefs in epubs.

Here is a href to a chapter, as produced by Calibre

<a href="14.xhtml#16">CHAPTER 1</a>

On the PRS-505 this actually jumps to CHAPTER 2 and not CHAPTER 1. The PRS-505 behaviour is consistent--it always jumps to the target after the one you want. The behaviour can be replicated in the Sony Reader Library 3.1.00.12040. The latest Adobe Digital Editions 1.7.2.1131 works correctly, as does the Calibre viewer.

If I change the above href to:

<a href="14.xhtml#P16">CHAPTER 1</a>

(prefix the id) and change the corresponding id attribute to "P16" in the target, then the PRS-505 works correctly.

Is this a known bug with the Sony firmware/software?

Any chance we can put a workaround in Calibre to use prefixes for ids?

Thanks!

Yeah its a know bug with ids that start with a digit. There's an open bu request about it, but I haven't had the time to look at it.
