The blank lines are put in by css processing and under control of the author (publisher). I just posted The Gambler in eb1150 format for anyone that is interested. I add the curly quotes and apostrophes and cleaned up some other nits. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14235

I've updated the file once again and I think I'll put the ePub output on the website now. With a larger number of books, additional bugs could pop-up and we're hunting them right now ^^

Edit: It's online: http://www.feedbooks.com/discover
No cache for the epub files for the moment, it might take a few seconds the first time that you generate a file.

Great idea. It looks like anyone can now retrieve all of the books at the site in this format. Wonderful news.

All of the public domain books indeed. We'll add it for user generated content and RSS feeds once we're over with this first beta for ePub.

OK. I'll fix this problem, we certainly removed or replaced something while updating the website to support ePub...

Edit: It should be working now.

I posted this as a comment under the Great Gatsby on feedbooks, but a number of .epub hare being generated incorrectly. Great Gatsby and Art of War are two. The link to certain chapters after a certain chapter all point towards the same incorrect point when I open those two books in Digital editions. In Great Gatsby chapter 5 and up link to the same page as page 2 in about. I was not able to find the rest of the book within digital editions. The problem is not present in the pdfs

Other books with this problem (not a comprehensive list) are:
Woolf - Mrs. Dalloway.epub
Thoreau - On the Duty of Civil Disobediance.epub
Plato - Gorgias.epub
Orwell - Animal Farm.epub
Joyce - Ulysses.epub
When I open fb.xml in opera after unzipping it gives errors of the following nature "XML parsing failed: syntax error (Line: 1369, Character: 29)" (This is for Great Gatsby)

Tried some of these: the whole text is present in the fb.xml but there's xhtml errors at some point (usually a problem with a <p> and <b> tag or a <p> and <i> tag) that explain the errors while clicking on a chapter. I'll update the flex or run the fb.xml through tidy to get rid of these problems...

Fixed. All the books that you listed are now correctly working in OpenBerg.

This is a totally separate issue that I just stumbled upon by accident but when I try opening any fb.xml file for any epub in IE or Maxthon (ie based) I get a message of the following nature. It does not affect Digital Editions in any way and no such errors appear in Opera:

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Well first of all these are not supposed to be opened in IE, but in DE/OpenBerg/FBReader instead ^_^

Style sheet problem ? Maybe you just unzipped fb.xml without the stylesheet directory ?

Nope, I extracted the whole epub first and then tried opening fb.xml. I don't plan on opening it with IE in the future, but in case it was a problem I thought you should know. It is present in every ePub I tried. For all of them fb.xml opens fine in Opera and Firefox - so there may be some sort of error in the xml that Opera and Firefox overlooks but IE doesn't.

OK, I'll try it with IE too, see if there's any error in the xml file, but it should be 100% valid xhtml now that I've fixed everything and run it through tidy.
