There's no point in hating InDesign, it's the name of the game for printed page layout.
I was going to suggest a workflow - prepare text in Indesign using very basic epub-compatible layout, leave it like that until ALL text revisions have been made. Then export an epub, continue tarting up in InDesign for the printed version.
But that's too organized. Authors can't seperate content from layout.
