      Thanks for pointing out the error, Scrid. This ebook is primarily designed to serve as a cloud book hosted online, in order to be accessible anywhere and to allow users to save their bookmarks and notes. It supports interactivity, webforms and was created using HTML.

      The HTML code for the popup webform is what caused the errors in the PDF version, so we created a new one for you, also using the free version of Kotobee Author:

    Error message when opening the PDF file:

    “This page contains the following errors:
    error on line 1 at column 1: start tag expected.
    Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.”
    And the rest of the page is blank.

    So, it’s is unusable and doesn’t contain any information.
    It’s only 22 Ko of size too, what is abnormal when it’s supposed to be more voluminous.
