I came across this link at MobileRead about free ePub eBooks for kids.
I downloaded one at random: R. Caldecott's First Collection of Pictures and Songs [ePub link]
I opened it in Sony's eLibrary software and Adobe Digital Editions.
Both were horrible.
I also tried Calibre, which did a slightly better job.
But still, I was so disgusted by what I saw, I couldn't even take screensnaps.
How is it so easy for people to create terrible ePub? And then set it loose on the world to give ePub and eBooks something akin to a festering lip sore?
The worst LIT I've ever come across had blank lines between paragraphs (which is also an ongoing sin in all formats) -- never anything as atrocious as what I saw here.
Is Adobe Hindering eBooks?
Ah, Gorgeous LIT!
