Wells, H. G.: The War of the Worlds v2.0 2008-05-28

Yes, this is a repeat book. But I wanted to do a proper format so here it is direct from Project Gutenberg. I have a little trick I used in Book Designer. Take a look at the table of contents and then the footers. I'm not yet posting the HTML0 file so I can keep you guessing about my trick. If anyone knows, feel free to say so. I want to know who can be the first to figure it out.

Quote:
H.G. Wells's science fiction classic, the first novel to explore the possibilities of intelligent life from other planets, it still startling and vivid nearly after a century after its appearance, and a half-century after Orson Wells's infamous 1938 radio adaptation. The daring portrayal of aliens landing on English soil, with its themes of interplanetary imperialism, technological holocaust and chaos, is central to the career of H.G. Wells, who died at the dawn of the atomic age. The survival of mankind in the face of "vast and cool and unsympathetic" scientific powers spinning out of control was a crucial theme throughout his work. Visionary, shocking and chilling, The War Of The Worlds has lost none of its impact since its first publication in 1898.

Are you referring to the fact that the page footers have the chapter titles, but the TOC doesn't? The chapter titles are, I guess, given the "subtitle" style, but I'm not sure how you get that effect. I'd be interested to know!

Is this BookDesigner you're talking about?

You mention a trip in BD, but what I like is the fact there are NO UNDERLINED FIRST WORD in a hyperlink!!

Now, that's what I like!

Then I gave the entry in the table of contents a title style and the second line a subtitle style. Book Designer then put the title in the table of contents and the Title + Subtitle as the footer. I think it's a nice effect. That way you get the full title in the footer and on an unmodified Reader you get the table of contents with all the same size font.
Very cunning!

That's because there are no hyperlinks, I believe. Jon hasn't got a table of contents in the text - just the "Reader" one generated from "Title" styles. No hyperlinks, hence no underlines.

I must admit I do like having a "Contents" page at the start of the book as well as the "TOC" menu item on the Reader!

Well that's one reason I'm including the HTML0 file. Not everyone is going to like the way I've formatted it. So its just a matter of redoing anything you want that I did not do or do to the way you prefer. What I was thinking of doing next time is working from the HTML code and then using html2lrf to format it and see if I get the contents don't have any underlines.

I actually found it by accident. And then decided I liked it because on an unmodified reader, the font changes size. So it means the font for the ToC would be the same size for the external ToC.
