A few questions

My root question is if W3C offers epub versions of your documents.  And if not, I would like to encourage you to do so.  There are open source tools to go from most mark up systems to epub similar to those that produce PDF.

The reason is because of iOS and macOS.  “Books” on those platforms can ingest PDFs but most of the features are not available.  For example, with PDFs, I can’t read the same document on one device, save my place, and resume on another device.  I can’t set bookmarks or notes.  etc.  The text flow also seems more constrained with PDFs on iOS / macOS than when viewed via an epub version of the same document.

Now… I don’t mind doing things myself so my backup question is: where are the original markup for the published documents?  I assume people do not just write straight HTML but have some system of writing the documents and then they get published.  Are the original documents in whatever document creating system W3C uses available to the public and if so where are they?

Thank you for your time,
Perry Smith
