Converting a play in docx to epub

Hi, my name is Steve and I am a newbie on this forum.

What is the best way to convert a play written in .docx format to epub for sending to a Nook simple touch.

see attached file for format.

the character name and dialogue is separated by a tab stop, however on the nook the dialogue doesn't remain in line, it varies with the length of the character name.

Any ideas

you should convert your dialogues to table in word, make grid invisible and then convert with Calibre - it's quite good in converting to HTML tables

later you'll probably have to study HTML table properties to fine tune them in epub
