So, how do I do this ? Are there examples that come with the programs, a faq here I didn't spot ? What is the correct direction ?

Hmmm. Maybe I just need some rest. I'll do that, and check back in after a few hours, and see what I can find in the way of examples, docs, etc.

Thank you.
One program you can use is OpenOffice.org (a free office suite). The following thread may provide the help you seek when using OpenOffice.org to convert plain text files into other formats: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62934

OpenOffice.org will save files as PDFs, but as far as I know it doesn't support epub (yet).
