CSS stylesheet for ePub
/* You may notice that my CSS file is organized in a fairly straightforward and */
/* static way. This is intentional, folks. You can do a LOT fancier - but I'm */
/* operating under a KISS principle here. Otherwise it's too easy to have more */
/* than one style applying to any line and making troubleshooting difficult. */
/* My goal is portability and it NEVER distracting from the text. */
/* Put any additional fonts you REQUIRE here. I recommend using additional fonts */
/* only when you MUST; and always define a fallback. Please note that if you have */
/* the font in a sub-directory, you must define it properly in the src portion */
/* Also ensure you have the rights to whatever fonts you are using. For example, */
/* I contacted the HPLHS for express permission to use this font of theirs. */
