Text Converter way forward - Using epub as the input format
- View Source
I've added several new sections to the Worknets OnlineTextConverter page. Please see the section from 'epub format' onwards...
I'd like your comments on the new sections as a possible way forward.
In my previous learnhowtolearn messages, I mentoned .epub format for eBooks. I wasn't suggesting .epub as an output format, for other eBook Reader devices. I mentioned epub because I think it would make a good single input format for our converter.
The eBook industry as converging on .epub as a single format for authors/publishers to send eBooks to eBook distributor/retail websites, like Amazon, eBooks.com, etc, instead of needing to prepare and send a whole variety of formats (.lit, .pdf, .txt, etc).
The eBook websites then make eBooks available in all formats, by converting epub to other download formats (pdf/lit/etc), as required.
epub can also be used by end-users/readers as one eBook reader format.
Authors would be responsible for sending/uploading eBooks to Minciu Sodas in epub format.
Our converter could be an epub-to-JPEG converter.
The new Worknets sections propose WHAT we could do, but until I've got your opinion on the way forward, I haven't said much about HOW to convert epub-to-JPEG.
I've also given some information on what epub file format actually looks like.
This is just a summary. Please read the new sections, Andrius, and let me know what you think.
