I have a handful of different documents in the folio views infobases type. Any way to get these documents converted to an epub? I'm attaching a folio views file so you can see what they are and see what you can do. I really appreciate any direction. I had to include the .nfo file (which is the actual folio views database) inside a zip because the forum wouldn't let me any other way. Thanks.

The first step would be to generate an html version of your data. A quick search found this (http://www.law.cornell.edu/papers/lii/fffhtml.htm) script (their server was down when I looked, but the Google cache is here (http://209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:LSpHin7CFUQJ:www.law.cornell.edu/papers/lii/fffhtml.htm+folio+views&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk&client=firefox-a)).

Once you have the data in html format, import it into Sigil then save as an ePub.

Went through the website....didn't make much sense..don't see the script they keep referring to.

You need to work out how to export your database as html. I don't think anyone here will be able to help you with that (it looks like a specialised and slightly obscure database app), your best bet is to give the company a support call .

Once you have the html, you'll probably need to post-process it a bit. If you can give an example of the sort of html you're producing and can clearly describe what you want the finished document to look like, then I'm sure people here can give you some pointers. In most cases it just requires running it through a few regular expressions.

We can do the HTML / online conversion it will be database driven and query based and take 4-5 weeks to study Folio tags and replacing with HTML tags. Simple HTML will not work, it will need a backend database.
