Now, I'm not so sure I need the epubs anymore thanks to your tip; I'll find out with more reading.

I don't know anything about HTML5, so I wonder if it can handle equations?
I am sure I know less than you about HTML
I haven't been able to find a quick way of converting a latex document while turnign equations into SGV images. I can get to an HTML file that will display properly in a browser, but this uses mathml - I see Bluegriffon has an html extension and can handle svg files, but I do not know whether it can turn mathml into svg, and given that the manual costs €5, the mathml extension about €4 and that I am a cheap bastard, as a matter of principle I don't want to pay for something that may not work at all for me.

yep, I guess palatino pdf will have to do for now...
