Text wrap in epub for ipad iBooks

I downloaded the ePub in this post:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpost.php?p=454210
but iBooks says it is not a valid epub.

I don't see much other information here about text wrap (though perhaps I'm not searching in the right places or with the correct terms).

Help?

There are issues with that Alice book, largely because it dates back to 2006, before the epub spec was finalised.

If you want an example of text wrapping with floats, take a look at Zelda's version of Three Men in a Boat.

But does it show the embedded font that Zelda used to give Three Men in a Boat a specific look or does it lose that to lose that look that Zelda went for? See, if it doesn't display that font, then it doesn't show up nicely at all.
