Unused CSS / FireFox / Firebug. UPDATE 11.09.12 | A good number of searches regarding deleting extraneous CSS continue to lead readers to this blog post.

unused CSS / FireFox / Firebug

During the time since I wrote this post, my coworker India Amos started to use BBEdit to quickly isolate used CSS in her ebooks (which therefore allows her to get rid of unused CSS) and has shared her workflow on her blog. I highly recommend checking out her instructions. Lately I’ve been working on editing the code on series of eBooks that need to look the same. Each of these eBooks was released at a separate time and each outsourcer treated the conversion from print (InDesign or PDF) to ePub a little differently (these ePubs have not benefited from a “meat grinder” approach and that’s all I’ll say about that). Most of the time, the CSS and HTML is similar enough so that I can work on one title, and then 1. copy that CSS and apply that to the rest of the ePubs and 2. do a find/change on the HTML to make it match the CSS. Here’s how it worked out. 1. The Book Studio. Here’s my annual post about PePcon.

The Book Studio

Last year’s is here. The popular Print + ePublishing Conference is rapidly approaching! PePcon is the popular conference created by AnneMarie Concepcion and David Blatner, the powerhouse behind InDesign Secrets. This year the conference is in Austin, Texas, from Sunday, April 28 through Wednesday, May 1. It is four days of learning new skills, becoming cutting-edge current with skills you already have in print and digital publishing, and uniting with all sorts of your people—people in the publishing industry.

As I’ve been looking over the sessions I’ve been doing what I always do before attending a conference: Planning out which ones apply directly to what I’m working on today … and most likely will be working on tomorrow. These are the sessions that are most applicable to my job as an ebook developer, but you can’t go wrong with any of them. EPUB Bootcamp: What You Need to Know is my pre-conference workshop!
