Thanks for the feedback. I'm now working to improve the drag-and-drop feature to allow moving many items at once. It's about 80% done so hopefully a new version will be released a week from now.

I'd still really like to hear feedback on the Xhtml import feature. I'm especially curious if anyone has whitespace problems with the imported text (that is, either missing spaces or too many spaces. After getting drag-and-drop working, I'll start improving the import feature to support other tags and attributes.

OK, I'll upload the setup.exe to the sourceforge servers. If that still won't make some people happy, then please speak up.

For the time being, please post bug reports here. An incomplete list of bugs that I know about can be viewed here:

The languages are stored in an Xml file inside the exe with this format:
Code:
  <language>
    <code>fr</code>
    <desc xml:lang="en-US">French</desc>
  </language>
  <language>
    <code>en-UK</code>
    <desc xml:lang="en-US">English (United Kingdom)</desc>
  </language>
I could add the ability for users to add their own languages but it's probably easier if someone would just make a complete list and send it to me.

Right now it is just a jpg image. I have read Adobe's technote about creating svg cover pages and also posts on this forum where people say svg in epub isn't reliable. Regardless, svg should come when gif and png image formats are added.

Now that an xhtml import framework is in place, it shouldn't be terribly difficult to do this.

Of course that is very important but it will be one of the last major pieces to be added. This is because I don't want to create the file format now only to be forced to change it once another feature is added.
