ePub, CSS : Bug with 'position:relative' property ?

Hello there,

From the few experiments i've made, 'position: relative' property seems to make elements invisible in iBooks.
I've only played on this with 'div' and 'span' elements.

The ePub displays fine on Adobe Digital Editions.

That's pretty embarrassing because the IDPF specs seems to allow it.

Does anyone got the same bug or am I wrong somewhere else ?

I've just come across the same exact problem.

And <img> with position:absolute contained in a <div> is showing ok in ereaders and Android reading apps.

However, iPad decides to not bother with it and show it blank. As soon as the position:absolute is removed the image is shown by the iPad. However, it is not vertically centred as that's why I was using the absolute positioning

Thank you Apple for making our lives more difficult
