First, the Calibre epub reader does include a function to allow you to print an epub file. It accomplishes this by converting it first to a PDF. There have been efforts to add new features in CSS to make it easier to print (and as a replacement for FOP). It's already fairly easy to produce both EPUB and PDF. If that is true, there is no special need to ...

It's not possible to dynamically change content in epub2 books, however, you could theoretically use JavaScript in an epub3 book to re-paginate a book, however, this would be overkill, since the epub3 standard supports page numbers. Unfortunately, very few freeware apps besides iBooks (iOS, macOS) and Azardi (Windows, macOS, Linux) support epub3 page ...

There are no size constraint as such for images ( eg . title page or any other image), however it is preferred to have high resolution images. Note : Just make sure if the book contain too many images, due to high res images epub size should not become too heavy. Secondly make sure as a best practice following styling is carried for all images All images ...

I am looking at the excellent book EPUB 3 BEST PRACTICES by Matt Garrish and Markus Grylling in the section "Page Numbering." First, we need to describe what the function of the <nav epub:type="page-list" ..> element is supposed to do. Some reading systems (specifically Readium) have the ability to search specifically by page number (presumably ...

First, I've formatted lots of poetry for epubs, so I can offer insights. I don't know about what kind of visual demands you have for poems. But I'm assuming that you have the usual ones -- keeping lines of a stanza together, having the proper indents and line widths and forcing page break. Poetry is easier to format by creating HTML and css style sheets. ...

I cleaned up the code by deleting the excess id tags (these were added by inDesign when exporting to epub and were unnecessary), and that fixed it. Still no idea why this specific paragraph had issues and not others, which also contained excess id tags. Turns out, inDesign had added some nice little code to the CSS for the class "_idGenParaOverride-1" to ...

Pagebreaks are usually used in conjunction with nav document page-list sections and since you need an id to refer to pagebreak markers in the book it'd be rather pointless to use pagebreaks without ids and a corresponding page-list section. You can find an IDPF-approved sample epub3 book with pagebreaks and a page-list nav section here.

The title page can be as big or as small as can be. There are no technical constraints about the size of a title page image -- other than that of interior images generally. An image is also optional -- I have produced ebooks without any title page images at all. For epubs which will be converted into Kindle format, generally you should provide as high ...
