How widely supported are smallcaps?

What it says on the cover, he. No, really, from what I've investigated (not directly, mind you, but I don't have access to a dozen viewers), the word is small caps aren't widely supported. But how bad is it? I've thought I could just [agonized screeching]fake them[/agonized screeching] with {font-size: 70%;} and all caps (I was half-happy upon seeing the numerical values for font-weight, thinking, oh fool, I could at least beef them up, no such luck in EPUBS and most browsers).

Possible to use custom column in tag browser tooltip?

I use a custom column for ratings so I can use half stars. Is it possible to use this rating column instead of the default one to calculate the average rating in the tooltip of the tag browser? Or if not, is there a way to change the default rating column to use half stars? TIA!

Tag Editor Question

Can someone explain exactly how the Mange Tags editor works? Does it only change the current tags, or does it keep track and always change new tags? Can it be used in multiple libraries? I know that the Tag Editor plugin is for importing and recursivly changing tags and keeping the changes, but I hate using it and it never really seems to work for me. Plus if I make a mistake, it can effect the whole library. It is just easier to use the manage tags and type in what the new tag should be. ...

RTF to MOBI - bad formatting of Bullets

When converting an .rtf file to MOBI (for use on a Kindle Paperwhite), the Calibre program creates bullets that look okay within the MOBI viewer inside Calibre, but when I transfer the MOBI file to the Kindle, there is a line break immediately after every bullet. The formatting in the .rtf file is as simple as simple can be: I'm using MSWord 2010 and using just the standard bulleted list, nothing weird. (This is happening to me in all of my documents with bullets.) Any suggestions for fixing t...

interminable sync & battery drain

My Kobo Forma generally works great. (& I have a new and increased appreciation for all of its features now that I'm acquainting myself with an Onyx Note 2; the bigger screen is interesting, but Kobo's reading features fare outstrip the Onyx device, IMHO. The device even feels relatively fast now -- while I thought it sluggish before!) But one thing that I can't seem to get rid of is, is the interminable sync. It just won't complete its syncing. It's not that it doesn't communicate with the st...

Lockdowns And Gun Control Fail Chicago Again

Opinion By Larry Keane Lockdowns And Gun Control Fail Chicago Again, iStock-Denis83-1157205916.jpg USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Chicago is proving strict gun control laws are a failure. Sadly, it’s a lesson that is costing lives. City and state officials, however, are refusing to learn this tragic lesson. Criminal misuse of firearms led to the deadliest Memorial Day weekend in the Windy City in five years. That’s despite state, city and police officials preparing for a surge in criminal violence. ...

La ou je me perd un peu c'est quand je dois transférer mes livres sur ma lisseuse. Pour ce faire, calibre utilise l’extension Kobotouch.

Is there a plugin allowing me to fill a certain column simply based on tags?

For example, if a book has a tag named "Holmes", I hope this plugin can automatically fill a custom column "Genre" with "Detective Fiction". Certainly I can do a search for tag:"Holmes" and edit the metadata in bulk to manually change the "Genre" column, but I have to do this every time I added new books. I'm wanting this plugin because my tags are auto-generated, but I hope to convert these tags into a custom column rather than being tags.

Anyone have non-google play firmware for a rk3026 e-reader (C67ML Carta+)

Since I'm going to go through the trouble of flashing firmware, I thought I'd ask to see if anyone has old firmware for the C67ML without Google Play and Google Apps. I don't want these things sucking battery life constantly from my reader. If someone has this stored somewhere, could I please have a download link to the files? :thanks: so much
