Post Wilde, Oscar: The Picture of Dorian Gray. v5 10 Sep 2014

"The Picture of Dorian Gray" (not the portrait) is the only published novel of Oscar Wilde (1854-1900). It was first published in 1890 and then revised and new chapters added in 1891, it is this second revision what I am uploading. Probably everyone knows the story, but I'm not going to spoil it anyway, it's about a young hedonist man who gets a portrait of himself painted by a friend. It's a philosophical/psycological story of gothic horror (according to Wikipedia).

I created this version from the PG text, which has very few mistakes (there was at least a missing line, though). I added curly quotes, italics, diacritics, etc.

Not much fancy stuff in this ePUB version. For those wanting to read this in a web browser, I include an index.zip file: just unzip this and the .epub file in the same directory, and open index.html (and modify index.css if you like).

Any kind of feedback is welcome (including appropriate tags).

EDIT (v2): Added appropriate xml:lang tags where needed for foreign words or phrases.

EDIT (v2.1): Fixed a typo ("peries" -> "perles").

EDIT (v3): Made it validate and added support for epub2pdf.

EDIT (v3.1): Updated for the new version of epub2pdf.

EDIT (v3.2): *Now* it should be fixed.

EDIT (v4): Fixed a typo (thanks mayoi)

EDIT (v5): Changed the code around chapter headings, I hope it wors better now.
