Need assistance with ebook formatting.
Have a project that needs to be formatted for Kindle and ePubit and all other formats.
May need some or all of the following completed:
-Convert all apostrophes, single quotes, and double quotes to the appropriate HTML codes for curly quotes, taking care to convert opening apostrophes as apostrophes and not as left single quotes (e.g. 'Tis should appear as ’Tis and not as ‘Tis
-Convert all em-dashes (—) and en-dashes (–) to the correct symbol codes. Replace any double hyphens with em-dashes.
-Remove any extraneous line-breaking hyphens from the original formatting. Because a Kindle book can be viewed at several different font sizes, line-breaking hyphens often appear incorrectly (as with HTML documents) and should be eliminated.
-Convert ellipses (…) to the appropriate symbol codes.
-Remove any paragraph-starting tab characters or multiple spaces, replacing with appropriate formatting.
-Format chapter headings appropriately.
-Make new chapters start on new pages.
-Reformat images for the Kindle, including any original color for Kindle-compatible devices which use color.
-Convert any tables in the original to Kindle-friendly formats.
-Create a Table of Contents with links to the appropriate chapters, figures, etc.
-Add up-caps (drop-caps don't work on the Kindle) to the beginning of chapters (if desired by author) with either formatted text or an image.
-Add graphical flourishes between sections (if desired by author).
-Add "front matter"—separate title page, copyright page, etc.
-Add links (front of book, back of book, or both) to the author's website and to other published books in the Kindle store.
-Make any in-text references to websites actual links.
