Q: What will you do for footnotes? Will you link to them?
A: Yes, we will create footnotes and link them to the required location. Sometimes we keep footnotes at the end of each chapter and sometime (when asked) we keep all the footnotes at the end of the book in a separate section. Once the reader clicks on a note, it takes to the top note page and once the user clicks back, it comes back to the page user was reading! This needs manual work of making tags and referencing them to the top of the book. therefore if a book has scores of footnotes, we may charge them in addition.
Q: However will you handle sidebars/breakouts?
A: Unlike the paper books, the e-Readers generate content that the font size may be adjusted as a reader resolution. So as to possess an honest reading experience, it’s most appropriate to render tiny sidebars as pictures instead of content. It’s insupportable to possess the bound content being ordered move into precise vogue (such as text wrapping) however we tend to accommodate the foremost pleasurable reading expertise by rendering the sidebars as pictures in a possible location on the page. The profit is that it permits the initial font vogue to be maintained and conjointly the particular content of the book to stay within the content flow. Also, with the Kindle having the speech to text in beta stage, it’s best to go away the sidebars as pictures otherwise, the speech to text flow wouldn’t add up to the reader. For cases wherever the sidebar or separate reading section item is sort of the page, we tend to position it as a separate section (remember that eReaders don’t have set pages).
