Of course, it's not quite that easy. Ebooks are very restricted in design by the abilities of the ereaders: iPad, Nook, Kobo, or Kindle.This book gives you simple, straight-forward instructions about what needs to be done and why. It covers what is working today, and what is coming in the near future. It does not cover how to crack open the ePUB file and rework the XHTML a CSS. I no longer consider that necessary.You can do this, and it's not too hard. A bit complex, but that's the case with all book design. Get your questions answered without the need for coding.Important announcement! This booklet is current as of August 2012This field of design is changing so rapidly that anything a month old is at least a bit out of date. The good news is that the methods I will cover here will still work. The bad news is that some of them may no longer be necessary. Earlier this year, we were dealing with image size issues for the Retina display of the new iPad, for example. I found new information about dealing with lists in April and had to test it before I could write that portion of this chapter.
