Learning the Inner Workings of an E-Book File

Making a Book—Digital and Print—From Scratch
- Elizabeth Castro
EPUB Straight to the Point—Creating Ebooks for the Apple iPad and Other Ereaders” explains how to make an e-book that takes advantage of the advanced features available in the standard EPUB format. It starts with lessons using familiar computer tools—Microsoft Word and Adobe InDesign—so a writer can generate EPUB-formatted e-books using their existing files. However, since neither program can do everything needed to create the final EPUB file, the book also takes a detailed look at the inner workings of an EPUB format file and demonstrates how to use a text editor to add basic and advanced features which are not yet supported by Word or InDesign.
