Hi EPUB 3 folks,
We have brought up the practice of including virtual pages before. The go to
page function in titles that have a print equivalent  is fabulous, but what
if there is no print version?
A quick check of character of documents I have handy shows that there is
approximately 2k of characters on a page. I would think that a best practice
of placing a page break indicator between block items closest to that 2k
count would work well. Of course, this cannot be a requirement, but I wonder
about publishing it as a best practice. IMO it would help in figuring out
how large a title is.
Thoughts welcome.
Happy GAAD
