In this follow-up to his bestselling "From notice to Kindle," Aaron Shepard takes your kept HTML as a place to begin and tells tips on how to fast tweak and music it to prevent universal difficulties.

From the author:
If you're publishing on Kindle, likelihood is you will have your publication to seem its absolute best. yet that regularly calls for a role now not played via such a lot Kindle authors -- specifically, solving the HTML you submit.
Many authors stick with Amazon's prompt method of create their Kindle ebook: Compose in Microsoft note, export to HTML -- the language of ebooks and the net -- then undergo Amazon KDP. It's an technique I talk about intimately in my e-book "From be aware to Kindle." different authors use comparable tools with different notice processors.
Done competently, formatting in a note processor like observe can convey you possibly eighty% of how to a well-formatted e-book. but when you will want your publication to seem nearly as good because it can, there's that different 20% to fret approximately. Now, perfection is absolutely not attainable at the Kindle, given the quirks, insects, and barriers of the platform itself. yet you could come nearer -- if you're prepared to tinker with HTML.
Does that concept scare you? It doesn't have to. You don't need to learn that language (though it definitely won't damage if you happen to do are looking to learn). All you would like is on the way to realize small bits of code I'll indicate to you, and shift it or exchange it with different bits. lots of the adjustments may be performed with basic find-and-replace operations. in reality, when you organize a grasp macro as i like to recommend, the entire activity could be complete in seconds.
Here are many of the belongings you can accomplish via alterations in HTML.
* regulate bookmarks so headings keep right formatting while jumped to.
* get rid of settings that cease the consumer from determining their own.
* retain fonts from showing a lot too small or a lot too huge whilst the publication is opened.
* make certain indents and different spacing remains relative to bigger and smaller font sizes.
* Make up for positive aspects misplaced in translation out of your observe processor, like nonbreaking hyphens.
* cease "ghost hyphens" from showing in the course of words.
* preserve pages of textual content from disappearing for a few users.
* hinder the Kindle from utilizing its personal defaults instead of your settings.
Since be aware is the commonest instrument for producing HTML for Kindle, I'll concentration totally on Word's exported code, making this e-book an ideal significant other to my past one. but when you're utilizing a unique observe processor or a committed e-book instrument -- or perhaps if you're writing HTML at once -- the final rules I supply may still aid. in reality, I'll supply a few tips about Kindle formatting with HTML that you simply won't locate even in books devoted to that approach.
