Hi folks, re: Indesign table conversion to epub — is there a way to get it looking consistent between e-readers? I set the table styles such that they're no visible borders or rules so that the table looks like it's part of the body text.
 
The first screenshot on the left of a reflowable epub export opened in iBooks (left) and Calibre (right). Is there a way to get the one in iBooks to look like the one in Calibre, which is preferable? I opened it up the file in Adobe Digital Editions and it displays like the one in Calibre.
 
Also, the rules still showed up in the epub so I edited the CSS in Calibre so that the borders and lines are at "none" but they still show up in Kindle Previewer (see 2nd screenshot). Is there any way to get it to look consistent?

Tables are problematical with ePubs, it might be worth creating it as a graphic and see if that works for you.
