The Declarative Sentence trend is more of a rising star, not yet overwhelming the best...

SVG images trigger data-name error

I just recently learned how to make SVG images. They were working great in my pub until I discovered they're registering errors in Pagina: Attribute data-name not allowed here I'll probably have to pursue this on a SVG forum, but I wanted to first find out if SVG images should be used in epubs to begin with. Alternatively, is this an error message I can simply ignore? Thanks.

I was messing around with adding a book's tags to the subtitle field with calibre, however I made a slight error and now all my books have a subititle with just 'Tags: ' I've since fixed my template, but it won't set the subtitle to blank again. Is there any way to remove all the subtitles? I've tried using Kobo Utilities' update metadata in device library, but that doesn't seem to work when I'm trying to set the field to blank ('')

kindle dictionary selection for ebook
