I need somebody with Kindle to check formatting2010-03-05 08:17:51 by fakefir
I'm helping a friend format a book for free online distribution.
(The paperback version sells at Amazon for $20 but he's giving away the eBook to build some buzz for his next book.)
Anyway, I don't have a Kindle, so I downloaded the eBook after posting it, and I am viewing it in the "Kindle for PC" reader program.
There is a ONE SPACE indent at the start of every paragraph. This extra indent doesn't show up in the PDF or other formats.
The eBook distributor says its a bug in "Kindle for PC" and the book will look fine on a real Kindle, but I would like independent verification
