I am creating a fixed-layout picture ebook in EPUB2 format to be published on the iBookstore.
In order to start some CSS3 animations at the same time on both pages of a page spread, I'd like to use a mechanism to synchronize the start time for the animations. This is because I noted that, in the iBook reader running on my iPad2, the left and right pages of a spread get loaded at different times and usually the right page is loaded approximately 1s later than the left page, though the delay is extremely variable.
My questions are:
If cookies are not allowed, is there any other way to synchronize the two pages of a page spread on the iBook reader?
