Noticed unable to change font size and slow opening of Fedora epub document on nook simple touch reader with:


There are a number of errors when the file is checked by http://validator.idpf.org/application/validate

This looks to be the same issues as rhbz701667 - Improve quality of Publican's epub generation

Experiencing the same problems with my Nook Simple Touch, I tested all the Fedora 16 EPUB documents using the aforementioned validator. All of the documents had multiple errors. FWIW....the PC-BSD 9.0 documentation had even more errors.

Current EPUB documentation cannot be displayed properly. This is a problem which should be resolved.

I believe this is directly related to the complex CSS being used. Merging in to CSS reworking bug.
