Thanks DaleDe! Looking deeper into this gave me exactly that impression
Coming from the EPUB side of things I almost feel spoiled by the things I could
do, provided the eReaders out there would support EPUB properly. But now, with MOBI in mind, it's even more difficult and constraining to "design" eBooks that actually look like something beyond just flowing text.
It's the browser war all over again
The other day I played with the Mobipocket Creater
but that's too much clicking around for my taste; I'm more of a scripting kinda guy. However, I'm beginning to wonder which way to go: kindlegen
or Creator? I assume since Amazon is the target market, it's kindlegen?
