Is there a workflow to create an AZW book? Spec? Exporter?
b) The only concern would be pictures, tables and specially formatted text. Regular text comes through just fine.
c) Nope. Not gonna happen.
d) Okay. So don't use any.
There are 3 ways to make an ebook file for the Kindle.
1. Send the source file as an email attachment to @free.kindle.com. You will get back an AZW file.
2. Use the Windows only Mobipocket Creator to make a PRC.
3. Use Book Designer to make a PRC.
The files created by these 3 methods will be practically identical.
