    Superscript in EPub

    UDevp Level 1

      I'm using InDesign CS3, when I'm exporting the document to epub, suoerscript applied in the document is not coming in epub. I've used character style for applying superscript.

       

      Any suggestion why it is not coming in epub?

          Hi,

           

          It seems the CSS generating automatically for 'superscript' during ePub conversion is only NULL in both CS3 and CS4 (I didn't checked in CS5), when you replace the contents 'span.superscript {}' with the below contents will resolve your issue:

           

          span.superscript {
                vertical-align: 33%;
                font-size: 75%;
                }

          Please check and confirm.

           

          Thanks,

              I've changed & checked, now it is working fine.

                Hi Jaswin,

                 

                It clearly shows that we need to apply the proper character styles in InDesign file before converting the file into ePub, since the manually applied styles are getting ignored during the ePub conversion, but still I find a problem in the CSS for some styles (Small caps & Superscript). So we need to update the CSS file as per the details below after generating the ePub file (The ePub file can be easily edited using the freeware 'Sigil'):

                 

                span.italic {

                font-weight: normal;

                font-style: italic;

                }

                span.bold {

                font-weight: bold;

                font-style: normal;

                }

                span.smallcaps {

                font-variant: small-caps;

                font-size: 8pt;

                font-style: normal;

                }

                span.superscript {

                vertical-align: 33%;

                font-size: 75%;

                }

                 

                Hope this will resolve your queries, pl. check and let me know for any further clarifications.

                 

                Thanks,
