OK, what I’m going to ask are mostly about coding, phrased by a total rookie:
How do Kindle and other e-readers specifically display that 1 page I read? Like, there are markers at the 1st & last word of the page, right? I guess that’s the way it knows what to display when we swipe to next page or previous page. But if the markers are attached to a specific words, the beginning & last word of the page, then how can it differentiate them with identical words that appear all over the whole document?
What is the ‘inside’ word for those specific markers? Or, if Kindle doesn’t use marker, could you please explain the algorithms that help it display just 1 page for readers?
What I want to do is to create a personal blog that whenever a reader clicks on an article, that article will be called up and fill the memory without refreshing the page. The article will be displayed in a reading dock that has 2 pages on the screen - looks much like an open book. If the reader press buttons to increase or decrease font size or line spacing, then those 2 pages will be automatically reloaded like in Kindle.
The problem is, my outsourced freelancer can’t reproduce that Kindle effect on the web, and neither does he know any precedent sites. I’m not a coder, and though I (think I) kinda know what I want & how it works, it’s frustrating to explain things that Kindle does so trivially. Could you point me to some existing templates to make this whole thing easier to deal with?
