I do not know whether it is correct that you mean MS Word protection mechanism makes us helpless to Word document code?

Actually, the Word protection mechanism has nothing to do with creating EPUB documents. EpubSTAR can properly recognize and extract information in the Word document, and generate eBook documents following the EPUB specification. The font, paragraph format of Epub documents controlled by the EPUB specification, and reading mode controlled by the EPUB reading software. These all have nothing to do with MS Word. As simple as that.

In addition, I want to clarify that EpubSTAR is not using the HTML export feature of Word to build epub code. This exported HTML documents do not conform to the EPUB specification. It contains a bunch of "mess" as you say, or "redundant code" which I call.

Well, thank you, I understand.

EpubSTAR can handle "mess". This means that EpubSTAR can handle some common control characters of MS Word, and these control characters will make the EPUB is not through EPUB normative validation.

However, MS Word is a complex hodgepodge, EpubSTAR can't give out all the "mess" solution. Some of the known "mess" is: a text box, picture-text box, and the float property of pictures. These "mess" will be gradually resolved in the development of later.

Currently EpubSTAR the "mess" handling mechanisms are: conversion of common "mess", ignore the rare "mess", generate normative and concise EPUB eBook documents.

I was unable to try it out myself as it appears use parts of to be lMSWord t provide some functionality and I have not got Word installed at the moment.

From what I could see it looks to be a useful addition to the collection os ePub creation software available but a full evaluation by me will have to wait until I have the time, which will not be soon.
Hmmm. You seem to be particularly concerned about the WORD to EPUB capabilities of EpubSTAR. This feature does require MS Word installed previously.

In fact, EpubSTAR has also an other feature: TEXT to EPUB. This feature can be used produce EPUB eBooks txt document. This is also a very interesting feature, very efficient, very fast, customized with great potential.

Thank you for your advise. I expect you to complete the assessment.

Does ePubStar work with Word 2003? If so, I'll give it a go and see how it works.

Ah, it's a 32bit app. If your system is 64bit, you can run it in compatibility mode.

readme.txt____________________

6.3 Win7/64-bit system environment to run: because this is a 32-bit application, 64-bit systems should run in compatibility mode. Operation:

1) Right-click the EpubSTAR program shortcut, open the Properties dialog box, click the "compatibility" tab.

2) Check "Run this program in compatibility mode", select Windows XP (SP2) or (SP3).

3) Check "Run this program as an administrator".

4) Determines the run.

A new application in this day and age for which you need to set the compatibility mode? That is a no-no from me.

It should be a no no. Gobs of 32 bit applications run just fine without administrator mode on a 64 bit machine like mine. Understandable if it were a system utility or something, but a converter from one text format to another, ridiculous.
