I would like to help with this.

I downloaded the source you pointed me to.  Are the post processing  
tools available?

The ePub generators all start with HTML.  But the various versions  
available all had one problem with them or another.  I won't elaborate  
here.

There will also need to be some style sheet tweaking because usually  
the readers are black and white.

I'm am using Calibre at this point although I tried other ePub  
generators too.  Calibre is a open source Python based tool that can  
generate ePub documents starting from html.  It is like iTunes except  
for eBooks.

My initial objective will be to produce a single page html version and  
stylesheets that Calibre will work with and produces something that  
looks decent on my eReader (I have a "nook".)

On a slightly different topic, is there an official "cover" for this  
book (or these books)?

Thank you,
Perry
