Why Text content Overlaps on Floated Images in iBooks?


I have created a sample ePub with CSS image floating style (Ex: img {float:left;}) and loaded into the iBooks (version 2.1.1).

Floating of "Image and text" displays well but in most of the occurrences "text content" overlaps on the floated images when increasing/decreasing the font size (zoom in/zoom out). Screenshots attached for your reference.

I have used the following CSS code for image floating:

CSS code:
padding:0em 1.5em 1.5em 0em;

I am wondering, how this issue happens on iBooks because iBooks is the best ePub reading system from Apple.

Is it "iBooks" issue or CSS code issue?

Note: The same ePub sample displays well in all other ePub reading system (Example: Adobe Digital Edition, Calibre, etc.)

Could someone help me to solve this problem? Also advise how to identify the 100% zoom level in iBooks.

Thanks in advance for suggestions and help.
