Happy to get this post with a new open source to create ePub files. I will try it with my documents instantly.

well this turned out to be a colorful thread


As for OO, doesn't that belong to evil Larry now? Doesn't the OO version of the free and just have a new name?


BTW, don't complain about eScape being bossy, InDesign CS5.5 will let you do anything you like, and then simply crash on epub export. No error handling for any number of failures there...

I have to keep separate versions of InDesign documents - those safe for epub and those with the formatting I wanted...

And since Adobe doesn't bother responding in their own support forums (unanswered posts about epub export crashes from 2010 there), I'm looking forward to the kind people from eScape teaching me a few more details about how far i might be able to go...

Hi

Since the beginning of this loong thread, a new kid was born:

writer2xhtml is a small extension (500k) which produces a nice valid EPUB out of any properly structured OpenOffice.org or LibreOffice ODT file. Free, opensource, multi-platform.

Best results are obtained when you care about using styles with OO. You can have reflowable and floating images, tables, endnotes, ordered lists, style-mapping, whatever...

Current version is writer2xhtml.oxt 1.1.7.

http://writer2latex.sourceforge.net/
If you read French, there is also more info with my signature.
