DP Official Documentation - Post-Processing and Post-Processing Verification


These Best Practices provide guidance for producing well-coded HTML versions of our e-books. Using examples and explanations, they explore some of the common aspects of our e-books, and direct Post-Processors toward coding practices that will convert well to e-reader formats, for most books. They are designed for PPers, but are not meant to be a comprehensive guide to the full Post-Processing workflow.

The Best Practices serve as:—

  • recommended HTML coding practices as they pertain to our e-books;
  • a guide for creating HTML e-books which will convert as gracefully as possible to e-reader formats;
  • an introduction to HTML/CSS for new Post-Processors;
  • a reference for Post-Processors, Post-Processing Verifiers and Post-Processing Mentors.

The Best Practices documentation consists of several sections:—
