Catto Creations have provided another great ePub3 Fixed Layout demonstration, Bella the Dragon.
The opening sequence of pages is important to handle explicitly as more reading systems emerge. There is more information in this post.
In Bella the Dragon Catto Creations have used the minimum metadata required to cover all the required reading system and device presentation options.
More importantly the page-spread-right property has been applied to the cover spine html page. This ensures the ePub3 book opens correctly in Readium and AZARDI - the two accessible ePub3 reading systems.
<!-- The Metadata --> <meta name="cover" content="CoverImage"/> <meta property="rendition:layout">pre-paginated</meta> <meta property="rendition:spread">auto</meta> <meta property="rendition:orientation">auto</meta> <meta property="ibooks:iphone-orientation-lock">portrait</meta> . <!--Spine Properties--> <itemref idref="cover" properties="page-spread-right"/>
This is a simple two page spread book but the attention to this little cover detail matters to ensure consistent opening the way you want it on all current and future devices.
