I have a course catalog which I need to convert to EPub. I can get it in any of a number of formats. I have tried a bunch of different converters on the web. The output they give me is always ugly. Any suggestions of something that will actually work, and give output that is formatted the same way as the input? Course catalogs have a lot of lists, tables, etc.

Thanks a lot.

What formats can you get it in? Some are easier to convert than others, while some just won't due to DRM.

I've always had the best results with the source material as html since epub is basically html. The next thing is what tool you are using to convert to epub. The more automation you rely on the less perfect the results can be for some that has tables, lists, etc.
