Agreed, it's *GREAT*. What are the units for the margins? Percent of screen? pixels? inches?

Another question best illustrated with an example.

Go to the website. Enter "verne" (no quotes) for the author and "island" (also no quotes) for the title. Select the first one ("The Secret of the Island").

What's going on with pages 4-9???

In order to denote Italics you should use _Italics_ . This book contained a whole line of _'s. Therefore when I replaced them with <I></I> I ran into problems. I have now fixed this so please download the book again.

There will no doubt be more cases where the output is not correct. Please notify me when you come upon such a book and I will correct the problem.

Regards,

Trevor

The units for margins is pixels.

I am a little more uncertain about exactly what the font size relates to but 100 is quite small, 150 is great for children.

I have also now posted a Sudoku player on the site (my main line of business is in puzzles).

Please check the site in Opera, I get cut off tables. You might want to look into GutenMark for better results. Also, your books are uncompressed which makes them unnecessarily large. Why not use Calibre for conversion?

I will check regarding the cut off tables.

My rationale behind the site is that I wanted to make the process of getting books onto the Sony easier. I aim to make the whole process as simple as possible - so simple that my dad can put books onto his reader without having to ask me for assistance.
I am now looking at taking html books as the preferred source, this will give me better results. Also I will be honing the conversion so that even the .txt files are converted to produce very neat books.
Even as the conversions are at the moment, I am happy with the results. It provides me with books that I can read with the minimum of effort. Maybe my expectations are not that high but I am confident that the results I achieve will continually improve.

Regards,

Trevor

I mean you could use Calibre's LRF converter as back-end for your site. This would give you properly compressed files. It also already handles HTML input.

Project Gutenberg is starting to offer their books in directly Sony Reader compatible EPUB format directly, although the efforts still somewhat show their "experimental" nature.

Kindle users can convert to Amazon format via Stanza or Calibre.

Great job! I tried this with Moby Dick and custom settings.

The line spacing looks good, it appears a little bit more spaced than calibre books.

This is great for loading books on to SD card while on holiday (I'm not a big fan of the epub font)

I have tried the LRF books from Manybooks.net and find they have excessive line breaks for me. I found I get the best results with downloading the HTML from PG and converting it with Calibre. I am still experimenting---most of the books I want are available here and I have been going to PG for French stuff. In one case, the HTML looked beautiful but the accents didn't work when I converted it.
