Converting XML + XSL to Epub. Is there an easy way to do it?

Hello guys,

I have a small question about converting books into Epub.

At the moment I have some books in XML + XSL and I would like to convert them into Epub. It's possible, because now im converting XML + XSL into Mobipocket with the Mobipocket Creator, after that I am using Calibre to convert Mobipocket into Epub. But I have like 250 books to go.

Is there a faster way to convert XML files into Epub?

2nd question: At the moment my XML books are in 1 XML file so each book has his own XML file. How do I easily "chop" them in seperated chapters?


Greetings,

Rogier.

Maybe convert them into html/xhtml & run that through Calibre's html2epub, which can do the chapter splitting at the same time?

XSL is a Extensible Style sheet. It is usually combined with an XML document using an XSLT (transformation) that outputs some type of text. That text could be Html or RTF or whatever the XSL is designed. Your best bet is to use an XSL that will transform the ebook into Html.. then you can use calibre to get it into whatever ebook format you want.

Do you guys recommend any good converter? Because at the moment I am using Oxygen xml editor and it removes my tables when I export it to HTML.

I think for Windows XML Spy is the grand daddy XML/XSL/XSLT editor. however it is not free. It does have a 30day free trial.
