It agree: "it's actually publishers who pay little attention to the ebook final file and let pre-QA junk onto the market.

The spec is an issue, but it's been possible for a while to make a very nicely designed ebook.

I would argue that it's actually publishers who pay little attention to the ebook export and let pre-QA junk onto the market.

a third way involves JS (my rb_smil_emulator.js, modified), but only works in iBooks and I do not recommend it anyway.

otherwise if you want parallel texts, use <div> to wrap parallel fragments, but this allows only for 1 language in audio
