Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Conceptual Questions and Customizations Regarding EPUB2 Stylesheets
In my experience with Hachette books, the kobo readers do not display the EPUB3 files (mybe not docbook's, but generaly speaking)
So we got back to epub2
I have the IDPF test files that I run from time to time on the IPAD, the closest EPUB3 compatible mobile reader, and a lot files are rejected ("unknown format.....").
My 2 cents
If you want you can send me some files, I will test them on IPAD and MOBO.
