Bug: If a special character is followed by a tag and a word and no whitespace, word is wrapped anyway to the next line
Status: Confirmed
Device: Glo, Mini, Touch
From Firmware: 2.5.1

@anyone: the fact the database seems to get corrupted very easily seems to me a big bad bug...
Let me experiment a bit and see if I can come up with a text that will consistently do it without any copyright issues (copyright is the main concern, or I could just upload my current book I'm reading). It will have to be just the right length to catch the split and certain size font, and that font size will change somewhat if you change fonts.

It's definitely not an issue of a corrupt database at all, it's just bad software that splits in places it shouldn't be splitting at.

Edit: Created a very short 2 page epub that will show the beginning quote on one line and the following word falling on the next line for 2 instances. There's also images showing where the bug is in the text (with a bug to indicate it, of course!), and also an image of the font settings. It happens no matter what font you use, if the beginning quote will fall towards the end of the line, it will be split. In the images I have it set to full justify, but it makes no difference if you have justify off, set to left or set to right, it happens with all settings. The stylesheet for the epub does not specify any justification at all, I left it up to the reader software.

The stylesheet is as simple as possible, the only styles used in the book are <p> and <i> for italics:
Code:
p { 
display: block;
margin-top: 0em;
margin-bottom: 0em;
margin-left: 0em;
margin-right: 0em;
text-indent: 1.5em;
 }
