A very nice "GUI" editor for the OPF file.

Not vital, of course, but a real time-saver.
OK. I would probably not call these things capabilities or capabilities that do not exists in other tools. For other tools you just combine the tools and produce html first and use that is input. Emacs is a very nice editor to edit xml or sgml.

I asked to get ideas of things to add to Mobiperl.

It's the OPF editor that I find most useful. Writing OPF files by hand really isn't easy! Obviously you can just copy an older one and edit it, but the way that Mobi Creator splits the contents of the file into separate pages (files, metadata, guide items, etc) is very nice indeed.

Just take the DTD and use an SGML editor like psgml in emacs.

You're absolutely right.

Thanks for all the replies.
Eric, I've been able to run mobipocket creator under wine without problems. I installed it so: msiexec /i creator.msi. It worked for me with no loss in functionality. Even the reader works and can get all my books, but the ebooks browser screen has some refresh problems. And, of course, there's always virtualbox...

Cheers,
Rodin
