And, if you’re serious about publishing to the Amazon Kindle store then you might want to check out 
Kindle Previewer as well.
After finalising the setup in Sigil, I run the epub through Amazon's Previewer to check how it 
displays and if all's good, Previewer will export a .kpf file which is one of KDP's preferred 
formats for uploading (they'll also accept epub). I'm not sure about what's exactly inside the kpf 
file but it's 'enormous' compared to the original epub file although a subsequent download from 
Amazon is only about the same size as the epub. So possibly the kpf contains several variants that 
Amazon uses for different readers.

I also check the epub display in Adobe Digital Editions. One thing is for sure, not all ereading 
devices are equal and sometimes they can give an awful display. 'Drop Caps' are one of the worst 
for variability when you compare the appearance on different reading devices.
