Re: EPUB-Experiences making them?

Hi Lisa,

Leaving aside tables, etc, results may depend on the question of fixed-page EPUB or not. And as Olaf pointed out, it turns out that people like fixed-page EPUB in many cases. In these cases they will be dealing with how paragraphs and other content break between pages. There’s no avoiding it.

Back to the best-practice question: I guess EPUB-oriented publishing tools would include this limitation naturally, and simply not make it possible to author the types of content I’m referring to.

I look forward to hearing the results of your testing!

FWIW, PDF 2.0 will provide for comprehensive mapping of DAISY tags to PDF structure elements - including for such bugbears as page numbers.
