Question about ePub for Screenplays

Hi I am wondering if there is a possibility to convert all the text format screenplays available online into ePub format so that it maintains the layout based on reading device. I believe it might need some sort of css specific for this format. Anyone have any thoughts, ideas?

Should work fine. Not sure if the CSS will need tweaking or not. Probably depends on the source.

I don't think it'd be too difficult. You could set up some simple CSS rules to cover different formats within the script. You should give it a shot and see what you come up with.

A lot of this will be largely dependent how the text is formatted. Text documents are very simplistic, so they lack a lot of the formatting specifics of more advanced formats.
