That makes perfect sense now.

You guys have been giving me advice based on correct html application (thank you, I've been doing some tutorial stuff to understand better), and I didn't see the connection with calibre, since that was not the cause of the error.

Calibre would not catch an error that was simply a degree of freedom. And, it obviously does not give diagnostic info for something that is OK if it is done with the app in the first place.

My only beef might be that it is not at all obvious that the book structure is a function of how the partxxxx.html subfiles are created, and is potentially changed when the book is reopened. That may be unique to the .azw3 file type.

The links to images shown by the calibre editor for azw3 files (src="../images/00001.jpeg") are a fiction, used to make the links to appear in a familiar way to those who understand epub. In actuality azw3 has no images folder and references images using a sequence number and mime type (src="kindle:embed:0001?mime=image/jpg").

Thanks to all the contributors to this thread. For me, it has been a productive learning experience. Especially in my research to understand what you are talking about. Thanks again.

Here are examples of CSS codes for images (larger images):

.image1 {
display: block;
text-align: center;
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
}
.image2 {
height: 100%;
max-width: 100%;
}

Here is the code I use in the HTML files:

<div class="image1">

<img alt="Image" src="image.jpg" class="image2"/>

</div>

When the image is a small image file for a publisher or something similar, use the following CSS rule for "image2":

.image2 {
height: auto;
width: auto;
}
