The current option we are exploring is a Kindle edition because of its established security, but at this point equations and other items render poorly in Kindle. We don't wish to have a Kindle at lower-quality than the hardcover. We are in fact exploring custom software to go around this problem, but the timing of when that will be ready is uncertain.

Hello, thanks for the reply, but you are probably wrong about kindle's lack of rich formatting, because Kindle print replica (or, azw 4) will actually preserve the exactly same layout as the actual book;

Kindle Print Replica textbooks maintain the rich formatting and layout of their print editions while also offering many of the advantages of standard Kindle books.

Unfortunately, Kindle Print Replica is not available for self-publishing yet, and the current version has a serious security problem.

We looked at many alternatives, and each had a decisive disadvantage. I can't quite recall what the problem was with ibooks.

I appreciate your interest and that you took the time to make suggestions.

Kindle version is good but not quite as easy as e-books.
