Does anyone know if the new Kindle 8 format will allow for fancy fonts? I want to put my chapter headings and first letter in each new chapter in a script.

Thanks!

It's looking that way, since you can certainly do that with modern HTML and CSS.

Personally, I think that's overkill in an ebook, but if you really want to do it, you can use jpegs for that purpose.

Still, it's nice to know we are appreciated.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

Oh, definitely. I'm still recovering from the shock, though :)
