ePub XHTML files

Hello,

When creating an ePub, is it better to name the inner XHTML files with an XHTML extension? I’m not sure if there would be any drawbacks; I think ePub supports only XHTML. The extension would also save time renaming the files if one later converts the ePub to version 3.

Ugh. I see you're gonna make me work to convince you, eh? Since you asked why not making a paragraph a (built-in) heading anyway, I could ask, why have the feature of setting an outline level for paragraphs, and even showing it in the Control Board? I think if you look at enough books (or do enough ...

Well, then that is something that differs from Word. You think it was intentional or was just forgotten? No big deal if you guys just missed it (since again I think it's not often used). Adding it would be nice. The reason it's necessary is you could have many heading 3s, that vary in style througho...

Hey Robert, Thanks for all the detailed help. Really didn't need to go thru all that effort; could have just said check out this, click that, and that would have been enough.

ePub - All heading level styles in TOC

Hey guys, Thanks again for all the help. I'm doing an ePub that has lots and lots of heading styles. They all belong in the Table of Contents though the styles vary a lot, it'd be a pain to do them all as Heading 3 and then fix later. I noticed save as ePub adds only Heading 1 2 and 3 to the TOC.

There's an idea. The book I'm scanning and turning into an ePub also has dropcaps. Though seems like it might be hard to get just right. From what I've read, it'll look and be spaced different with variations in font. If you want to be just right, you'll have to embed the font. If you're ok with a b...

Robert, Thanks for the continued help. I don't normally go back and forth between Word and Atlantis.

I hope it's ok to ask here in the same thread. I noticed that paragraph styles with italics don't get the same in css. A span style is applied instead. Any idea if there's a reason for that? The other way seems cleaner. One of the issues I had with Atlantis was a paragraph style with italics. Within...

Sounds like I'll do something like that. Most of the ePubs I make are book scans for personal reading. Before, if I found errors, I would fix the Word file but now it's a bit of work and I just fix the ePub. For the Word doc, I could go back and change the paragraph style to be uppercase and that'd ...

Ah. Thanks.

Though sometimes headers have proper names and the case really needs to be looked at for each one. What I can do is just use normal case, and then modify the css afterwards to add the text-transform:uppercase.

I see. And Word does keep track of it as a character style. So back to my original request, hope someday Atlantis will use the original text and then apply a css style. The main reason I want it is for the TOC. I'd prefer the TOC to be normal case, while in the actual text, each heading is all upper...

Robert, About the uppercase, I'm using a keyboard shortcut (in Word) for it, and pressing it again does toggle the case. If I close and re-open the document, and try the shortcut it again, it reverts back to what it was before, so seems Word does keep track of the original case. For small caps, unde...

Hey, Am making a new ePub. It's a book of poetry and short pargraphs. Each one is an H3 heading. Seems Atlantis automatically creates a page break. It would be nice if, for each heading, the paragraph style setting was used : break or no break. In this particular book, there are hundreds of H3 secti...

I see what you mean. I saw it kept the name for linked documents so thought it might also for embedded. Ah well. Seems Word has no way of keeping track of that. I think I might have seen alt text (for html descriptions?) but I forgot.

What I'm doing is taking a .doc from Microsoft Word, opening it in Atlantis, and converting to ePub. The ePub HTML is what is really messy. Yes it is cuz MS Word isn't great at reducing redundant and unnecessary format codes. Yet Atlantis could clean it up a bit when making ePubs.

thanks. I could try that though I'd lose stuff like css styles, would have to re-apply them, and footnotes. I understand it's a problem of with Microsoft Word ; it should be smart enough to remove redundant formatting. Though if Atlantis could fix it with an ePub, that'd be really great.
