New guy needing information

Hi I have had my Nook Color for a couple weeks. So far I love it.
I found Calibre a few days ago. And so I love too.
I have been a Computer guy since 1978 and I still have things to learn.

Moved to General
Search subject: "how to server up ebooks on my web site" for more details
Sorry , Marty

I want to publish newsletters from my web site for people to read or download for free if they want. Right now they are "PDF" files and Calibre converts them very easy to "epub" files.

Calibre will convert and upload the PDF files directly to my Nook Color (NC) while I am plugged into my PC and they have the cover and heading. That is fine for me but what about for others.

I see when a file is a few files. I know how to code HTML for a user to down load one files but I am not sure how to do it for the eBooks the need multiple files.

I know with a PDF file it is just a simple thing to open it and save it. That is fine for me but me but the look better in the eBook formats I have viewed.

This may be off topic for an intro group but it is what I am working.
Since I retired I keep dreaming to projects that could be done because I have more time than money.

So I want to have free newsletters or whatever in a format for the eReader that anyone could click on and download in to their device that is very easier for the user.
So can you tell me where to go? ...Wait maybe a link to more information would be nice.

Marty

It is my understanding that the epub format is the industry standard format and as such can be ready by all readers. Thus if you want your newsletter to be ready by the widest possible number of readers than epub is obiviously the format that you need to use.
