Need Help with EPUB on iPhone 4

Hi there, i am playing around with Calibre since the announce of iBooks for iPhone, and now i am stuck at a concept for my eBook.
I am trying to get a comic ebook which behaves like the Marvek Comics, so if i tap on the image the image scrolls to the next position, i made this with HTML and Javascript and it works in Safari e.g. but not in Calibre, so i create the EPUB and then after all i click Üreview and it displays anothing than the cover image, so the cover is inside but nothing else, i tried this with a blank DIV where the Javascript makes a Background Image for it, to get the sliding feature, but Calibre does not display it, i even tried to make it a Image but the same, so Calibre seems to get just static Images displayed great but not dynamic, i tried to inspect even the Zip file and Calibre did just the first image inside the package but does not display it at all, anybody knows if this is possible and other thing is:

Is there any Preset to get the Image to fit the iPhone 4 screen for static Images?
Cause i tried it with the default and the images are centered with borders around the image, so they do not fit the screen width, they are smaller , is there any way to fix that? I looked in the device Presets but there is just one for the iPad, but none for the iPhone...

Additionally i tried with another book to make a Table with content to split elements per Pages on the iphone and set there aBackground image, this was shown on the Preview but not on the ibooks app, anyone knows if this is possible or how to do it?


thx for a help, if needed i uploaded the comic to the web to be available from browsers to check the code, let me know if this can help



thx in advance

You'd probably be better off splitting this post up, and asking about the Calibre issues in the Calibre forum, and the ePub issues in the ePub file format format.
