Cool Easy Conversion: Doc to Epub / Mobi

It's based on setting the document title & chapter headers to "Header 1", save as "html", ask Calibre to "Remove spacing between paragraphs" and set the "Level 1 TOC (XPath expression)" to "//h:h1".

This won't satisfy everyone's particular needs, but I think it's a helpful tutorial for folks just looking to convert a simple document into eReader format.

Hope this helps someone.
Calibre rules!
Thanks, that is a mighty handy procedure to know about. Tested it and it worked just great!!
