I was kinda amused by the new Kindle Guide which, inter alia, has the good oil on how to get your desired INDENT for each paragraph.

This time the Guide is PRESENTED in Kindle and here is a page at 55% location.

notice anything strange here folks?

My question: how'd they get those bullets to behave
like that???

that is simply a bulleted list from Word, which translates to an html bulleted list.

OK my answer is THREE bloopers by reference to the majority of the book which has zero indent .

so after bullet list only para 3 has no indent

if we define para 1 indent as ONE space, para 2 has TWO spaces and para 4 has THREE spaces as indent.

maybe it's just me with the eagle eye after doing some 100 format jobs, speed scanning down the page for several thousand lines to make sure my customer's books do NOT have such typos/bloopers.

but NOBODY could miss the main blooper which is the cover picture being a tiny thumb.

anyone like to explain what was done wrong here?

possible correct answer but I was looking for a more direct answer ie WHY didn't the kindle book have a full sized cover when those FOLLOWING the book DID?
