Oh, wow, thank you so much! So what is the functional value for my book downloaded from the Kindle Store directly as KFX whose AZW3 style sheet reads 5%? On my Kindle, it's way less than 1.6.
It should be 1.6em. If you have a counter example I would very much like to see it.

(If you can supply the title/ASIN of a book, I can take a look at the free sample and see what is going on with it.)

Can you prove to me that Kobo does a better job on the layout and typesetting of an ePub than Nook does? Please compare a modern Nook (anything from the 2015 Glowlight Plus forwards) with a modern Kobo. Screenshots to back up your points would be appreciated.

I mostly read ePub because it looks better.
On Kobo I read kepub because I appreciate the extra features enough to put up with the subpar layout.

To me the Nook Simple Touch and my three Kobos in epub mode only vary in screen size and quality, not rendering. The kepubs get the indents and margins (at least) wrong on some ebooks, but not others. So now I don't use kepub.

I like 1.4 em

Not layout, but I do love how easy it is to add fonts to the Kobo. I don't think NOOK can do that.

I didn't say ePub on a Kobo does a better just at typesetting then a newish nook. I was saying that you don't need to use two different devices. You can use the Kobo to read both KePub and ePub. I cannot see how the nook would be better with ePub. But I can see how it might be similar or the same.

Nook Simple Touch and Sony PRS-350 and various ancient Binatone models all work with fonts embedded in the book.
Some ereaders need the sideloaded (USB transferred) ebook to be in the Adobe directory, even if there is no DRM, for the pulisher's fonts to be rendered.

The Glowlight Plus is waterproof, the Clara HD is not. Sometimes I like to relax at night by reading in the tub.

Yeah, I really do wish the Nook allowed sideloading of fonts. Though Georgia works well enough for me.

They don't handle sleep covers either, now that I think of it.

Reading in the tub can cause the waterproofing to dissolve because of the steam and the heat.

I was under the impression you had to boil water to get steam. I may be wrong.

As far as I know from what I've read on HZO's website and elsewhere, their nanocoating is not affected by humidity or levels of heat found in the home--unless we are talking about superheated steam.

If you can see it, it's actually condensation. Like in clouds, mist and fog. Actual steam is invisible and 100 °C or higher (about 212 °F in American money).

You'd die in a bath hot enough to have real steam. However I'm being pedantic as condensing water vapour (which can be hot enough to cause burns or cold enough to chill) is often called steam.

Though I'd not rely on HZO treatment. I'd regard it as helping to preserve from accidents. I've opened a Libra H2O, it's nicely made but I don't think much of the design approach to waterproofing or understand why power switch isn't on the main PC to save on wiring and a sub PCB. It would also need carefully dried and not dunked in salt or dirty water as there could be electrochemical action of the gold on the USB attacking other bare metals. The buttons may be prone to grit between the visible parts and the actual switches. I'd be sceptical as to the long term waterproofness of the switches.

I'd put in a ZipLock back at the beach, batch, shower or sauna.
