You're welcome. But don't expect results too soon. The OCR is fairly clean, but it always takes time to weed out errors and get all the paragraph breaks right.

When you do make the ePub, please no excess paragraph spaces.

I make a point of always having a space of at least 3em between paragraphs.

I'm sorry to lower the tone of these requests, but has anyone found a good e-book version of Milton's Paradise Lost?

The Gutenberg one is a bit lackluster and not much of a joy to read. I believe, however, it is out of copyright in the EU too.

Text must be allowed to breathe. 3em between paragraphs and a margin of 15% on all four sides create a relaxing reading environment.

I've put something up. Hope it's nicer than what you have.

3em spacing between paragraphs is unreadable because the spacing is huge. 15% margins is a huge waste of screen space. And the bigger the screen the worse it gets. If anyone used your preferred settings on an eBook sold by Amazon and I bought it, I'd raise a KQN to get it fixed.

How outrageous must I make the stuff I post before you get that I'm pulling your leg? Should I have talked about 50% margins? And 20em paragraph breaks?
