An issue with css stylesheets

When in a css stylesheet I execute the commands "Reformat CSS/Multiple Lines Per Style" in those styles where I have declared the property "!important", Sigil adds a blank space that, in some readers, it makes that the property "!important" does not work.

An example:

Before "Reformat CSS/Multiple Lines Per Style":

Code:
.topM {
   margin-top: 1em !important;
}
After "Reformat CSS/Multiple Lines Per Style":

Code:
.topM {
   margin-top: 1em  !important;
}
And that extra space is causing issues in some readers. Please Kevin and Diap, fix that in the next version of Sigil.

I will look into this. Which readers? Multiple whitespaces are allowed there according to the spec.

Yes, of course. But I have issues with Foliate, the web extension EpubReader and OverDrive (so far )

This should now be "fixed" in Sigil master but you might also want to file a bug report with Foliate about ignoring multiple spaces before !important in css.

It may be sometime until the next release, so feel free to build Sigil from current master (since that is the only change since the last release).

EPUBReader? As in the ancient, unmaintained browser addon?

Upgrade to Thorium. At least it stays constantly up-to-date and actually follows the latest EPUB specs (it's maintained by Readium).

Hi Tex;

Yes, that old browser extensión. I try my epubs (epub3) look consistently under:

Sigil (and its plugins Readium, Bibi anda EpubJS)
Calibre
ADE 4.x (Windows)
Thorium (Windows)
IceCream (Windows)
EpubReader (browser extension for Chrome and Firefox)
Foliate (Linux)
Gnome books (Linux)
PocketBook (Android)
Gitden Reader (Android)
Reasily (Android)
Aldiko Next (Android)
Lithium (Android)
OverDrive (Android)

And believe me, it is a challenge to write code in order that the epubs look almost equal (with complex layouts) in all those programs.

My primitive workaround was to run a search for 'ƀƀ!' and replace with 'ƀ!' on the CSS files until it returns no matches. Replace the ƀ with a space.

I see in that list some garbage. Dump the garbage and things may work better.

Also test with ADE 2.0.1 as a lot of people still use it or some old version of ADE.

You can't complain about a problem with the CSS if a program you are using to test does not respect the CSS. A lot of ePub readers don't respect the CSS and that means you really cannot say the CSS has a problem when something does not work.

I see you didn't read CAREFULLY what I wrote... I said:

Quote:
I try my epubs (epub3)...
That list of programs and apps is for testing EPUB3, not epub2. And ADE 2.x only supports epub2. To test epub2, to that list, I add more programs and also reader devices.

And I don't agree with you, none of the programs included in the list is garbage; in fact, they are the programs and apps that better support the epub3 protocol (of course, some do it better than others). For example, with all of them I can get an almost perfect control (99%) of the fragmentation (that is, avoiding breaks into different boxes, avoiding a page break immediately after a heading, or avoiding blank spaces generated by images, tables, side notes, etc., and that even so, those images, tables continuate joined, not broken), so that hardly can be called garbage the programs that can offer such control.

And I will be very grateful if anyone knows of any other program or app (Windows, Linux, or Android) that decently supports the EPUB3 PROTOCOL and is not included in my list.
