Default ebook formatting and upload


Anyone upload fully formatted in HTML ebooks? I've always let the publisher format the book, but sometimes it doesn't turn out like I want and it can be a hassle to get it corrected. I'm familiar with HTML and CSS.

Hi Jimmy. I use HTML when | send out screenplays. Sometimes I use pdf for fiction.

I know there is software available which allows you do the conversion from Word DOC to HTML without learning the html langauge. And if you need advice when doing it there are lots of forums for 'html help'. I suspect there are translators, Doc to html and/or pdf, available as Share Ware (free)

There are a number of sites on the web that provide free translations. You upload your document and get back a copy in the desired format as an attachment to your email.

My favorite translating site is here
http://convertonlinefree.com/

You should search for 'free HTML translations'

Good luck. wrc

Hello again, Jimmy.

go here for evaluations of free shareware HTML editors:
http://webdesign.about.com/od/window...ws-editors.htm

Be aware that some shareware has viruses and make sure your anti-virus program software is turned on prior to download. That site has a click thru to download.

Bye. wrc
