A quick test with Wordperfect 2020. Pasted some text, created a couple of titles (using styles). Made some bold, italic and underline.

Saved as epub.

The resulting epub could not be opened in Sigil.
It did open in Calibre.

css:
body { font-family:'Times New Roman', serif; font-size:12pt }
p { margin:0pt }

It appears that WordPerfect is using Aspose.Words for file conversion.

Amazon uses the same software as the first step in the conversion of Word documents to Kindle ebooks.

No doubt that's why Amazon recommended to me to upload epub2 for KDP rather than docx or doc. The epub2 uploads are perfect as "enhanced typeset KFX", azw/KF8 or old mobi retail downloads. We check by purchase! The ebooks from Word format uploads were never quite right. Though the issues changed with time.

<snip for brevity>
Not really sure why that wouldn't open in Sigil. What did the error show? I do see the oddness around the Content-Style-type tag in the head, but the rest should just look crappy or odd, not prevent it from opening. Unless it was how the ePUB was packed?

Could you tell?

I don't know why it wouldn't open the epub. I've yet to re-install my new laptop with Linux and in my experience Windows do stupid things...

If I make a copy of the epub, that copy opens fine in Sigil...

But never mind, whatever the problem is (and it's not an issue for me), I'm sure it's not Sigil's fault. Probably mine.

Windows works better with/for eBooks then Linux. Linux does stupid things and I read about a lot of them on MR. Gotta love the stupidity that is the repository.

Nobody has mentioned it but still, in 2020, WordPerfect does not use Unicode. I loved WordPerfect, but that's why I had to abandon it. If you do anything in a non-Latin alphabet, you're toast with WordPerfect. It's so far behind the times.

You griping about Linux while constantly 'borrowing' images of their Tux mascot as your icon is just priceless.

Wow, I did not know it STILL didn't! I gave it up for much the same reason when I started working regularly with documents in a language with a non-Roman script, but that was close to 10 years ago. Sad to learn it's STILL the same.

Is this just a general anti-Linux statement or are you thinking of something specific? The only "issue" I know of with Linux is related to ADE — and the reason it's an issue is because Adobe doesn't publish ADE for Linux. So you have to try to "kludge" Windows ADE into Wine. (I, personally, don't like Wine because I don't like Windows.)

That is a major shortcoming. It appears that Corel is basically doing maintenance releases of WordPerfect. Even the ePub publisher appears to be an old (formerly) separate package that was updated to support ePub instead of just Mobi and bundled in with the Standard and Pro versions (and not the Home/Student edition).

This might be worth a Look:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corel

Corel isn't really Corel by now.
It's a more like Computer Associates, the last stop of once great software, milking the installed base with minimally upgraded releases. I'd forgotten they ended up taking over Micrografx. I used to love DESIGNER. CorelDraw, not as much.

I've always used the Atlantis Word Processor whenever I wanted to create an epub. It's had that capability since at least 2010, when I first put it on a computer.
