There was a question about choosing the page to be seen first when the ebook is first opened.
1. In Sigl, right-click on the file you wish to be the start file (Chapter 1 or a prologue) and choose Add Semantics | Text.
this adds this code to the the content.opf
<reference href="Text/Cover.xhtml" title="Cover" type="cover" />
<reference href="Text/Title.xhtml" title="Title Page" type="title-page" />
<reference href="Text/Copyright.xhtml" title="Copyright Page" type="copyright-page" />
<reference href="Text/TOC.xhtml" title="Table Of Contents" type="toc" />
<reference href="Text/A%20few%20months%20ago.htm" title="Text" type="text" />
Kindle opens to the first document marked with type=”text” in the tags.
Even without this, my book has worked perfectly on Kindle because Kindle tries to figure this out and is quite successful at it.

Smashwords says the cover width in you first page must be at least 1400 pixel wide. I am updating this to say that.
