OpenOffice, which is free, and has Writer, which is a Word replacement, generates much better HTML for conversion than M/S Word does.
Thank you for cind reply Susan.
I have looked a little on Atlantis word prosessor. (Loaded down the trial version) They have a e-book template (basic e-book I think)
Now.I do not intend to write paper books, or a five houndred page novel.
Just some small to medium size e-books.
Do you think that Open office will be good enoungh for this?

Also, when you say that in a "normal" e- book the content should be as simply formated as possible Words and pictures)
Do this say that the e-book loks more like a wordpress side than an ordinary paper book.
( I am sorry, but this was the closest I could get to explain it)
