Question PDFs to ePub

Hi Folks

Does anyone know of a way to import multiple pdfs in Mobipocket Creator?
I want to convert some pdf files of a book into ePub format, and having looked around at what tools are available thought a possible route might be:
1 pdf to html (Mobipocket Creator)
2 html to ePub (Calibre)
3 tidy up ePub (Sigil)

But from what I can see Mobipocket Creator only allows import of a single pdf which I guess means me handcrafting the TOC? - or am I missing something?

Thanks

What I do:
1 pdf to html (Mobipocket Creator)
2 tidy up html
3 Open html with Sigil, generate TOC, add metadata, create ePub

Another one:
1 pdf to html (Mobipocket Creator)
2 Open html with BookDesigner (Windows only) and tidy up your book.
3 Use HTML02HTML (see my signature for this utility) to make a clean html. Make sure the <HR> tags are replaced with Sigil Chapter breaks.
4 Open the resulting html with Sigil 0.2.0. Split the file using F6, generate TOC, create ePub.

Nice one Pablo, I will give these a try.

Hmm, nice. For some reason I thought that separate chapters are better.
