Apparently only some parts of my CSS file get interpreted (e.g. blockquotes are beautifuly formatted according to my specs while regular paragraphs are not). It seems images are displayed in full size while in LRF generated from the same HTML file the images are resized to fit the screen. But the most serious issue is that in EPUB, certain national characters are not displayed correctly - but they work perfectly in LRF. It may be that HTML2EPUB incorrectly detects encoding (the incorrect characters seem to be those few which are different in Windows-1250 and ISO-8859-2), I don't know. Still, the poor formatting and very poor performance with links seem like a serious problems with the Reader itself.
Thanks for posting. This is exactly the kind of information that needs to come to light. This is the first release of the ePUB product and it is clear that this version is not done yet. This kind of feedback is needed for all of us to see a better product in the future. You should provide the feedback to adobe in more detail as to exactly what is wrong as they are the authors of this software.
