Smile What is the best "format" for manuscrits on iphones?

Hi out there.
I am new to this forum. My mother language is as you soon will find out not English, but I do my best, and you are free to smile from my mistakes. ( I good smile do not hurt anybody)

In the "old days" with typewriter and ribbons I wrote a little. Now I want to try this new medium called e-books.
I have looked at the net to try to find some adwice, but there was nothing to findI so I hope I find some help on this place.
The story is like this. I have made a first try writing an e-book using microsoft words. But it did not turn out so well.

I want the words to be easely read on iphone as well as PC, so how do I do this? What is the best font size? (for example)
I am new to this, so any adwice,tips and triks will be wery helpfull for me.
If it is possible I would like to continue using words and photoshop if there is not an decent free starter program out there someplace

I use stanza on my Iphone for reading ebooks. To create the ebook I use book creator which is a MS Word Document Template File. It requires the installation of Calibre as well. Once set up its quite easy to use and ==X== who wrote the template it has his own following here.

See this link.

This is the Book Creator thread with all the links to Calibre as required.
