converting to ePub

I am not anxious to convert to ePub, because I have not yet found an easy way to do it without messing up my formatting.

I have a question. It seems like every ePub I convert or use on my device has the chapter titles and other titles with the margin on the left. That really bugs me, I want it centered. I can't figure out how to get it to the center. Is it a limitation of ePub?

ePub uses XHTML and CSS for markup and styling. You can provide Calibre with extra CSS styles in the conversion options, and if that's not enough or your books still aren't coming out well-formatted you can use a tool like Sigil to edit them and clean them up to your liking.

how do you make the css for Calibre?

Okay, found some sample css for Calibre in another forum.

How do you install it in Calibre?

Does the css do centered chapter titles? If so, could you please share it or provide a link to where you found it?

A link to the Calibre manual discussing css: http://calibre-ebook.com/user_manual...html#extra-css
