It would appear that EPUB standard involves an XML standard, in which case you could very well use FrameMaker in Structured mode. On Dec 8, 2010, at 13:20, ri...@inficon.com wrote: The CEO of my company has asked that I look into eBooks and the EPUB standard. He sent me the link:

If you end up having to switch from (presumably unstructured) FrameMaker, I'd suggest switching not to InDesign but to DITA to accomplish your goals. You can leverage your group's existing FM knowledge by still using FM to create your PDFs, but with DITA you are no longer locked into one

Hi Richard, If you look at the EPUB datasheet PDF, you will see that EPUB is an XML-based file format designed to reflow text according to screen size. Since EPUB is XML-based, you should be able to produce output from FrameMaker that can be converted to EPUB format. As far as tools, you can look
