I'm asking here a question which was asked on the Italian TeX group forum.
Is there a way to produce ePub output automatically from a LaTeX source?
I should remark that ePub is just HTML + a subset of CSS + some XML for metadata, packed in a ZIP file. So one can settle with the existing tools for HTML conversion. Still something better could be done for ePub output.
In the first place, ePub accepts only a subset of CSS, then it would be nice to produce the file with the metadata from the LaTeX source too. Finally, I'm not sure how it works, but ePub files allow for automatic hyphenation of words. By this I mean that hyphenation can be specified in the ePub file itself, so that a reader will not need to know hyphenation rules. Note that since ePub files are resizable, all possible points of hyphenation must be specified.
