ePUB 3.0 specialist to fix eBook for ePUB 2.0 and 3.0 compatibility

Files to be supplied

eBook to [login to view URL] (zip compressed correctly and with no errors using [login to view URL])

A sample ePUB 2 and 3 [login to view URL] downloaded for comparison (sample ePUB2.0 and 3.0 compatible eBook that works).

Problems

With ePUB book "eBook to [login to view URL]", the following issues exists (when compared to sample eBook "sample ePUB 2 and 3 [login to view URL]").

1. Conversion to Kindle format using Kindle Previewer does not go to cover page (preferred) or chapter 1 (alternative).

2. Cover image is not maximised in size to fit the maximum page dimensions (what's the correct [login to view URL] dimension and resolution? Can 300dpi be used?).

3. Kindle Previewer automatically shows thumbnails for the pages in the sample eBook, but not the eBook that needs fixing (why?).

4. The CSS stylesheet is not being applied to the chapters etc (why?). When styles are applied correctly, chapter main title is centered, chapter number centered, chapter opening quote right-justified, and the rest of the text, including table styles, look good (as when the chapters are viewed in a standard web browser).

Requirements

1. The eBook to be fixed must be ePUB 2.0 and 3.0 compliant.

2. Modified files in the eBook should be clean and simple. No added "Adobe" metadata information if you use Adobe InDesign (I prefer handcoded specialists to keep things simple and working right).

Why?

I have managed to get things working in ePUB 2.0 for clients. This latest eBook is from a client that is loking for foward and backward compatibility using ePUB 2.0 and 3.0 specifications. As the working sample shows, it can be done. However, I am not one hundred percent fluent in ePUB 3.0 specifications to ensure this file works correctly. I have looked at the sample file. I am almost there, except adding the ePUB 3.0 tags to the chapters cause unexpected changes to portions of the text (makes some of the lettering on certain pages just after an <h3></h3> tag go white before going back to black on the next page). It appears that I am not applying the new ePUB 3.0 tags correctly. I have also used text file differences and still I cannot get another eBook to look right (very close, but not quite there). It could be something very minor, but I would like to ask a specialist to fix the eBook file and make it work. Any advice as to why these problems exist would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.
