Full Screen Pictures vs TOC & Calibre vs. Comic Creator

Hi there

I have a designed a 100+ page childrens book/manual. I have been trying for weeks to get BOTH the TOC and Images to go full screen for my book.
At the moment I seem to have to choose between the two...

1) In Calibre:
I could generate a Table of Contents....navigation is perfect.
But no way in hell could i make the images output as full screen

2) Using Amazon's Comic Creator:
My images are full screen as required...
But no way could I add a working TOC html file.

I would like to have both navigation as well as full screen images. I cannot do html. I created my TOC in word using links. But i do not know what the TOC should like like for comic creator.
Nor do i know how to alter the code/settings in Calibre to make the images go full screen.

Can someone please help?

Thank you
Notjohn

Using Word and Calibre, you have stuck yourself with not one but TWO rather bad choices.

I cannot do html

Of course you can! I majored in government and did graduate work in philosophy. If I can write html, anyone can. Besides, you don't have to WRITE it. Word2cleanhtml.com online will take your Word doc and turn it into acceptable html in about five seconds.

Good luck! -- NJ

I got my images to preview correct in Firefox:


using:
img width="100%" src="image001.jpg">

as soon as i open my html file in Calibre, it ignores my 100% image width and provides the darn preview with margins YET again.
I have literally have around 200+ attempts trying to sort this.

Anyone know how to force margins to go away in Calibre?
heck this is frustrating....I have respect for coders...
