I guess there's a lot of "religion" and personal preferences involved here, but in my opinion you would be better off using a text editor or maybe a (x)html editor (my preferred one is Notetab, but there are of course others. Or you could copy the clean text into Sigil and use that to edit). Epubs don't involve very many formatting codes to look nice, and judging from the posts here and in other mobile forums, people are using more time cleaning up the nasty code from various word processors, than it would take to format a textfile.

- but that's of course just my 0.02$ and I'm looking forward to the discussion coming up

Regards,

Kim
