Good day,

I just wandered if anyone has already gone though the trouble of creating a basic XSL template to generate the minimum ePub files and structure. If not, I will try and put something together on my own. I'm far from an expert in XSLT and creating directory structures, indexes etc. is something I have not yet done with XSLT, but I'm sure with Saxon and a bit of fiddling around it should be do-able.

Any insights from anyone who has ventured down this path before will be helpful. I found something similar in TEI toolsets, but it's complex and a bit overwhelming. I think a template that creates just the minimum ePub structure would be well received by a lot of people.

I was going to suggest looking at Calibre : <http://calibre-ebook.com/>,
as I thought it was built on Python+xslt, but looking in the package,
I see only a handful of .xsl files, so I don't believe xslt is driving
most of the conversions. Perhaps they parse everything into an internal
format and then serialize into different output formats ?
