  1. Uh … posting a coupon that expired last year? Maybe you mean 2011?

  2. Wierd, in Stanza on iPad, I can’t make the font bigger.  But it work fine in iBooks.


  3. D’oh!  Of course…2011.  Won’t be the last time that happens, I’m sure.  :S

  4. I went overboard and edited the epub version in Sigil (slowww download).  It looks just like html, and there’s a stylesheet where all the font sizes are hardcoded.  I just erased all the ‘font-size’ tags.  But now Stanza can’t search the ebook correctly, lol.  I’m not sure if a hard coded font size is supposed to be in an epub, or if ereaders are supposed to be able to resize it.  Yeah, too much free time.  My week long vacation ends tomorrow.

    Hmmm. This sounds like an old C.L. Moore story. I wish I could remember the name of it.
