Dslibris supports EPUB format files encoded in UTF Calibre is available for converting a plethora of formats, including PDF, to EPUB. I have ds libris installed. I have been able to download a few free books and convert them to xhtml no problem. I can get books from the library.

dslibris: Preparing books for reading

If you use EPUB, the rest of this article is unnecessary to review. An online Tidy service at http: There are efforts afoot to provide Gutenberg texts in ePub format, and Feedbooks provides ePub material. In recent versions, openoffice can export directly in xhtml. The exported file works perfectly well for me in dslibris. Been playing around with. Looking at the source however reveals no special HTML in those places, just an extra space.

Just to be sure, maybe you can send me the file to give me a little jog. Lance, sorry to hear that. Please help, I am a complete beginer! I try to run tidy on the required file by typing in the comand above and it seemed to run loads of text scrolled very quickly anyway! Kijof, how did you export to xhtml in UTF-8 using Abiword? Any tips on converting.

I suspect that Microsoft Word would work too. For txt file, you might wan to try to modify the content yourself. Open up the txt file, and change it as below, and save as. I recommend copy and paste on the Amaya web editor. Simple, quick and nifty.

Moreover, the document looks pretty much the same on the computer and on the DS. It worked like a charm.


Sorry for that last comment — I actually meant to post it on a different page, relating to converting files for use on an NDS eBook reader. Anyone else getting weird gaps in the text every 2 lines or so? Anyone else have this problem? I generally have been using amaya editor, although I tried the others, and they all turn out about the same. Will someone share a program, or website or something that will convert.

I have been trying for weeks now to convert my files for this program. Sometimes i get the red and white error screen, and sometimes it will open the book, but no pages to read. This was my solution with a pdf.

A bit long but it worked!!: So I opened it with the ultra edit a text editor and removed all that carriage returns with the menu option: I also deleted all the new page characters shown as a horizontal line in the ultraedit. I have to say that ultraedit has his own tidy, but I was not able to make it work as desired: Maybe if I knew how to configure the options … the meaning of asxhtml and numeric options.

I know this has got to be the cheapest cop out of the whole lot but it works for me. Ya see when you install the files to the root dir, now having no real knowledge of html or what im doing… I edited the the xht it came with.

In some cases the paragraphs will still be correct. One note to make to avoid backtracking: The override book title option is recommended because the title you put here will show up as the title of the book in dslibris. I made the mistake of not using this feature of GutenMark. Then lastly we use Html Tidy [http: Look at these poor comments. All monitors have a fixed coonvert, and words have to be wrapped when that width runs out.


Strange all around to see a polished reader like this crippled by such tunnel vision. Step one should have been displaying Project Gutenberg vanilla ascii texts. Dslibrks also thank you for reminding conver what my priorities should have been. It should be clear at this point that my priority is having books format evolve toward standards that will help publications interoperate with many applications. Despite my distaste for the tone of your posting, I would still be interested in seeing a document specification from PG that shows their text format is consistent enough to be able to reflow and maintain the intent of all prose, or otherwise a few hundred examples of documents from their library that prove this by induction.

Postings there should be open to the public; please keep it coming.

September 24, Author: Is there relief in sight? Using the export function on Abiword to xhtml worked fine to me with UTF Re above comment, I found a newer copy of Tidy and have now got it working. Get Amaya Editor, create a Xhtml file and paste the text on it, very easy. I just want something simple that you click, and it converts it over. Any help would be greatly appreciated. To create the htlm, I opened the txt with microsoft word and saved as filtered html Last, I executed the tidy command: It may look wrapped diff but keep note of where the txt is contained.

I hope this helps people who were having problems exported pdf files. The Help forum is here: This site uses cookies. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here:
