    I bought the ebook on Smashwords, but the EPUB isn’t very good. The fonts are not consistent, and source code is not indented correctly. Is it possible for me to get the PDF? I don’t see this option listed on Smashwords…

      Hi Philip, i do not see the issue with the ePub when i download a copy from smashwords. can you share your email id? i will send across a copy to you directly.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

        Hi. Thanks for the prompt response. I am sure that my copy is not corrupt, but due to how EPUB works, it’s most likely an issue with the reader. I am reading it on a Windows RT tablet using Freda as the reader. Have you tried that reader, or do you recommend another one?

          Hi, I have tested the ePub using these softwares. i created the ePub from xHTML using Calibre and Sigil.
          1. Tested using Calibre and Sigil on desktop.
          2. Tested using Adobe Digital Editions on desktop.
          3. Tested using Amazon Kindle on Surface RT for the Amazon edition.
          4. Tested using Book Bazaar Reader on Surface RT for the ePub. No issues reported here. In fact, code examples and formating have been preserved.
          5. I tested today using Freda and did notice that formating has been lost. Dont know if it is Freda or the ePub file that is the culprit.
          Can you please re-download the file from Smashwords? I made some changes to the file yesterday and hope those will the issues you are facing. If not, i will share a copy via email.

            I am confused why different readers interpret the same format in so many different ways. I can send across a PDF file (non-DRM) if you are ok with it? Please send mail to win8book at sridharpoduri dot com and I will share the PDF.

            I also tested the ebook with FBreader, which I consider the gold standard in EPUB processing, and something interesting happened: the latest edition of your ebook uses monospaced font for code but has no indentation, whereas the earlier edition uses variable-width font for code yet has indentation.

            I took a screenshot of FBreader’s rendering of the latest edition; it’s at the SkyDrive link above.
