Issue with Network Warror ebbok - epub format

Greetings:
Just picked up the epub version of the Network Warrior - Second Edition" and ran in to a couple of small formatting issues when reading from my Sony prs 300:
1) When selecting the index from the table of contents,I get a lloonngg pause, then a "Page Error" message.
2) I can't really believe I am saying this as I usually ask for the font size to be bigger, but the font size for the example code is actually bigger than the font that is used for standard font. Can that be shrunk a little as it kinda makes things difficult to follow due to the layout... even in horizontal mode, the text is too big to make a difference.

Other than that, the book is in good shape. I thank you for another great book.

Cheers!

    Hi Larry,
    thanks for bringing that to our attention. I do know from previous cases that the Sony PRS series has a problem with large TOC's.
    As to the font issue- that's a new one we've not heard of before. I will open up a case with the BookTech staff who will be able to escalate this to the ebook team to see if they can get a fix for that for you.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Larry,

    Thanks for bringing the index issue with Network Warrior, 2e on the Sony Reader to our attention. I've fixed the problem and loaded a new EPUB to our systems. If you go to your account and download the EPUB again, you should get a revised file that works fine on the Sony Reader. Please let us know if you still encounter problems.

    Regarding your feedback on the code font size versus the body text font size, we'll review our EPUB CSS and see if any changes are feasible. One of the challenges we face with our ebooks is trying to optimize our content to look as good as possible in a wide variety of ereader platforms, which have varying degrees of CSS and font-embedding support. If we can improve our EPUB rendering on the Sony Reader, we certainly will.

    Thanks, as always, for your great feedback and for being a loyal customer.
    Sanders
