> I know that there has been some talk about supporting eBooks in Scribus (which would be very nice) but I think there is another role that is needed more urgently: that of a visual CSS editor. LyX already meets most of my demands for generating XHTML/XML. If I could make use of Scribus to visually generate a CSS stylesheet, that would plug a serious hole in my workflow. It would also provide open source publishers alternative to InDesign.
i think that you're welcome to specify how scribus could be used to
generate a CSS style sheet which could be used for ebooks.
the future format of scribus will be very xhtml-ish and css-ish, so the
problem does not seem to be the data structure...
in my opinion the big challenge is how to use a paper oriented
application a screen oriented layout...
who knows, maybe scribus can do it!
for now, i would already be very happy if scribus could export the data
in a way that one can just add a hand crafted css and get an ebook!
that way you could put together your content with scribus and than get
an output for several media.
