Hi Dan

Your'e welcome. I went to this road before and here is the trick: E-pub
is a set of bundled html pages and html don't like tab characters.
Therefore we must ensure to replace tab character by proper spaces. It
happens when you have lists, where the list number or bullet is followed
by a tab character. Fix is to change the list style, but it requires
inspection. Other than  that, it looks quite well.

A sample of e-pub is available here

Note: Miklos Vajna from Collabora worked a lot on e-pub in 2018-2019
period. Worth a second look.

Kind regards

I was recommending the Getting Started Guide to someone on Reddit today,
and looked on this page:

The link is to the ODT version, whereas for most of the other books, the
links are to PDFs. Is that something we should change? I prefer PDF
documentation myself, but maybe there's a reason for this!

Here's the PDF:
