so do I need do 2 more passes i.e. go epub to ? and then ? back to epub and what format should the intermediate ? be please
You mention bad text flow and a desire for improved structure detection.
I think he is wondering how to take advantage of the Preprocess input file to possibly improve structure detection. This preprocess does a great job of fixing paragraphs and text flow, but it isn't available for use with ePub as an input source.

I suppose converting to rtf then back to epub with the Preprocess input file to possibly improve structure detection checked might help reconstruct the paragraphs and improve text flow. The only way to know for sure is for him to try it and see what happens.

Update: I'm just too slow in the morning.
