EpubSTAR do not "tidying up the messy code" in the Word document , because not using the "Save to the HTML". The EPUB generated by EpubSTAR is clean without any "messy code".

Perhaps the the following attached pictures help you intuitively understand how EpubSTAR generates clean code.

Any text (full or in part) in the public domain in Canada would do the trick I think.

So we could look at the html code and css created by ES.

I think it would suit and please JSWolf and perhaps Toxaris .
In #38 and #61 threads's annexes,there are the txt/docx/epub files you need.

Very nice and clean epub indeed (the DOCandEPUB.rar).

It also looks nice (among others, the <h2> coding)

Thank you for sharing Oxen.

亲爱的牛,被任何进一步发展的EpubStar程序?这似乎是一个精彩的节目,EPUB,像我这样的初学者 。我一直没能得到最新的版本(2.6-1)本主题中的工作,我的系统上,Win7家庭高级版64位,即使我已经照着所有的说明仔细。当我告诉程序 创建的epub文件,Windows消息说,该应用程序已停止工作 - 什么是错的,没有其他指示。发生任何变化,我已经重复此过程约10倍。感谢你的努力!

Dear Oxen, has there been any further development of the EpubStar program? It would seem to be a wonderful program for epub-making beginners like me. I have not been able to get the latest version (2.6-1) available in this topic to work on my system, Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, even though I have followed all the instructions carefully. As soon as I tell the program to Create the epub document, a Windows message says that the application has stopped working -- with no other indication as to what is wrong. I have repeated this procedure about 10 times with no variations occurring. Thank you for your efforts!

Why not use Calibre? It works.

Hi frank14612,

You can find the latest version here: http://www.by-smart.com/epubstar/epubstar_cn.html.

I didn't try the last version, but I have had the same problem: not working with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Better than Calibre you can use Apache Open Office with Writer2Xhtml (here http://writer2latex.sourceforge.net/). If you don't use AOO it is a big prog to install, but I think it deserve it.

Arios,

Thank you very much for your reply! Nice to know I'm not the only one with the problem.

As you suggested, I tried the latest version of epubstar, but got the same results as with the previous version.

However, I now have gotten excellent results from using two very different methods.

First, I used MS Word to create an RTF file of my 4-page test epic, which includes many bullets, screenshots and links. Next, I opened it with Calibre and converted it directly into the EPUB format. It took me a lot of trial-and-error and back-and-forth in Word and Calibre until I got things right, but I finally got it to look good.

Then, after reading your suggestion, above, I downloaded the Writer2Xhtml plugins you recommended and installed them into Open Office (which I already had). I opened my RTF file in OO just as it was at that point, exported it to EPUB, and opened it in Calibre. It was even better than the RTF-to-EPUB! This is definitely the way to go!

I appreciate your recommendation. It saved me a lot of dangerous downloading of shady software and wasted effort.

Frank

Glad it works for you!

There are many ways to create epub, but to edit them, you can also take a look at Sigil.

May a little karma be with you!

Thanks for your feedback.

Have you installed MS Word yet?If you want to use the feature of "WORD to
EPUB", Word 2003 or higher version is also required.
http://www.by-smart.com/epubstar/setup_en.html

Now, I am committed to the development of version 3, Word to EPUB capabilities will be more powerful.
