Take the ePub file, make a copy and change the extension to .zip. Now, the other way around. I’m not going to go over everything, rather just the sticky parts, or things you might not find elsewhere. The main thing to keep in mind is that everything needs to be explicitly “registered” in content.opf and toc.ncx. When updating, periodically ZIP and EPUB things up and check with an online ePub validator.

On the HTML pages, I put a viewport meta tag. Happy publishing! Consulter le sujet - Templates EPUB. Si ça en intéresse certains, des templates sont dispos sur mon site : Logiquement, ça devrait plutôt intéresser ceux qui publient de la non-fiction m'enfin bon.
