Agreed for a handheld device. For a conventional computer
screen using e.g., Acrobat Reader resizing the whole page
is easy. Or with my e-book you can just print out the whole
thing, I don't use DRM and the page size is 11 x 8.5
The markets are different. For a novel or memoir the html
based format works fine. For a technical work full of
tables, lists, figures etc. Epub or Kindle are apparently a
"Death Wore Black" Police procedural:
"Create Book Covers with Scribus"
