Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Conceptual Questions and Customizations Regarding EPUB2 Stylesheets

some of those files won't read.

I remember of "sous le vent", "sample media handler", "trees (bad rectangles)" , some mangas...

I run docbook-generated epub3 with multimedia added and hand-built epub3 content in my iPad without a problem.

For books generataed by others that work in my iPad use the following links:

http://www.elizabethcastro.com/epub/examples/epub3jp/jp24bis6.epub (vertical Japanese text, right to left reading)
http://www.elizabethcastro.com/epub/examples/epub3jp/jp24bis6.epub (manga, right to left reading)
http://files.infogridpacific.com/epub/a-christmas-carol2-3.epub (designed to be read in both epub2 and epub3 readers)
http://files.infogridpacific.com/epub/siddhartha2-3.epub (designed to be read in both epub2 and epub3 readers)
http://epub-samples.googlecode.com/files/kusamakura-japanese-vertical-writing-20120720.epub (vertical text, Japanese language)

All the examples but Kusamakura (the last one) opened in both iBooks and the Kobo app in my iPad. Kusamakura only opened and read in the iPad. 

I would like to see the files you're getting errors with. Where they validated with epubcheck?

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.
