Converting from FictionBook2 e-book
FictionBook is an open (nice!) XML-based e-book format, that’s pretty popular in Russia. The format doesn’t specify the appearance of the document, it describes it’s structure. There are special tags for epigraphs, verses, quotations and a few more. It also contains the ebook metadata (author name, title, publisher) and is great for automatic processing and indexing. And the best thing: It’s DRM-free. In contrast to ePub it’s a single XML file, even images are embedded (as Base64). That’s how e-books should work I guess. If you’re wondering how e-books should not work, read a little bit about how ePub works.
The files end with
.fb2 by default.
Converting to Word
Not sure if the world would be a better place without Microsoft Word, but I guess we’ll never find out. It’s here and it’s here to stay. Every fricking office computer has Word on it. Techies hate it, because it’s not really machine-readable, it’s proprietary and there is no documented standard. Office people love it though. There are not limits. Put text in it, fine. Add images, no problem. Want to switch the font to Comic Sans? Sure! Make a creative layout, amazing! Do whatever you like. But don’t forget to convert it to a proper file format before you send it to a techie.The files end with
