[done] Multiple CSS

Hello,

Is there a specific way to use muliple CSS's in ePub ?
I do have two CSS, standard names, section ponting to the correct CSS

But in ADE and other reader, it's like the CSS's doesn't exist anymore

Thanks
GE

You can use as many CSS files as you want, but you have to reference them in the XHTML files. Look for something like:

Code:
<head>
  <title>Part IV &mdash; Chapter XII</title>
  <link href="css/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
</head>
You can add more <link href="..." /> lines as needed.

I do have the following, which work in Sigil :

Quote:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<link href="../Styles/style001.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<title></title>
</head>

and


Quote:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<link href="../Styles/style0001.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<title></title>
</head>

And still, ADE seems to ignore them

There might be a syntax error, misspelling or unrecognized keyword in the CSS file, ADE tends to ignore everything as soon as it finds something it doesn't like.

Definitivelly not a syntax issue "in the css", it look smore like a pointing issue.
I did copy all second CSS code in the first one and it works.

The style001.css works
If I rename it to style0001.css (all sections pointing to it), it's not working anymore. Like ADE only abble to accept the style001 and nothing else.

What sounds illogic based on your comments, it should work


PS : i renamed the 0001 in 001, and surprise, it doesn't work back, looks like Sigil is messing something to the pointing codes

Do you also change the name in the OPF file?

Seems it's correct in the opf

Quote:
<item id="Style0001.css" href="Styles/Style0001.css" media-type="text/css"/>
<item id="style001.css" href="Styles/style001.css" media-type="text/css"/>

case-sensitive

When sigil create the original CSS, it's called style001
When it creates a new one, it's called Style0001 (note the S instead of s)

Of course, when I edited my section link , I just added a 0, and it works fine in Sigil. But ADE seems to be more case-sensitive than Sigil.


There is something weird in Sigil to maybe change in a future release (the first with s and next ones with S is strange to me)

Thank you Jellby for you appreciated help and time

Cheers,
GE
