We use a Word 2003 document (originally written as a script for the audioguide and modified for eBook delivery method).
SAVE AS "Web-page, filtered"
Note: no cover yet.
We then open Calibre to convert the HTML to ePub and, at the same time, use Calibre to insert the cover.
The cover is a .jpg produced using Photoshop CS5.
All you need do is, when you convert the book from HTML to ePub, on the "ePub output" page of Calibre's conversion dialog, check the "Preserve cover aspect ratio" check box.

But Toxaris is of course right; a knowledge of HTML and CSS is essential if you're serious about creating eBooks.
