I wrote Paul Salvette and he told me that the issues were with Calibre and that if I upload the files that they will work out, even the MOBI file which I can’t even see on Calibre. I’ve uploaded the epub file to Nook and it’s fine, including the cover (Attachment.) The Nook internet previewer shows the colors back to what they should be and the fonts are clear and crisp.

By control (on a tablet, a Nook or a Kindle) do you mean viewing, or editing?

Minor editing: could one of you could point me in the right direction to do some editing? Do I need to make a conversion in Calibre to open the document for editing?

Isn’t an .exe file a windows/pc only extension? Usually those don’t work on a Mac?
