The CSS Cookbook is a reference for the Post-Processor. It comprises a variety of topics on the theme: How can I make the HTML version of my book:

  • Conform to Project Gutenberg standards, but also
  • Be highly readable and useful as an online document, but also
  • Honor the interesting, historic, possibly quaint typography and layout of the original work.

The main tool for balancing these sometimes-conflicting goals is CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) markup of the basic HTML. The CSS Cookbook contains discussion of the problems and example solutions.

The Cookbook was first drafted by Dave Cortesi.
