Sorry, I don't know what ManyBooks is .. if you could please give me a link I will take a look. The idea behind my site is to provide access to all the PG books as and when people require them, it is not to store all books in LRF format.
As for the Italics .. I have to admit that I had not done my homework with regards to this. I will add in Italics and emphasis tonight.
For the table of contents I will have to check how consistent the PG books actually are, once I have established this then I can create TOC.
In the process of creating a LRF book I actually do some work on the .txt file and convert it into html so I could use the html versions and cut out a step.
It is a work in progress but I am a very competent programmer and I am confident that I can do almost anything required to create perfect LRF books.
