Perhaps native support for epub can be added in the new implementation, in due time ...

While native support would be convenient there's a reasonable workaround: use makeinfo to produce DocBook, then use dbtoepub.

For the Sony PRS-505 Reader, it would be great if the epub format could be supported as an output format:




It has the advantage over pdf that the e-reader can layout the pages itself, such that the pages are always at a readable font size.

It also has a standard index page which can be automatically rendered in the reader.
