Amazon Kindle ebook questions and advice?

Hey Warriors, I'm about to launch my first few Kindle ebooks. I had several on my hard drive I really haven't messed with and thought I would put them up.

Here are my main questions...

1. Can you put hyperlinks or affiliate links within the content?

2. Do you use images?

3. Finally, what font size, type and line spacing do you typically use?

Thank you in advance!

    I e-mailed Amazon asking about the hyperlinks a couple months ago. The man who wrote me back said he tested on his Kindle and usually they did not work. They did just come out with a more advanced Kindle, so I do not know if that would make a difference. Do not know if that helps you or not!

    Yeah, I wonder if it will work on the Kindle Fire?

    What about font types, size and line spacing...and images?

    Line spacing and font sizes don't matter for Kindle because the user can adjust it as he or she prefers.
    I just used a basic html template. If you don't have lists or bullet points in your document, you can follow the instructions through the Kindle site. Since mine did, I went with a different template.

    Love,

      Links work on my Kindle ebook.

      First I go to Menu and then Turn Wirless On

      Then the ebook links go to my websites.

      This is on the Kindle model before the Kindle Fire. I assume links will also work on Kindle Fire.

      For links to work, Turn Wireless On

      You might include in the front of your book a notice to the reader to Turn Wireless On
