Unless your layout is quite simple, I would recommend separate processes
for these two outputs, presumably using the same raw materials. The
reason is that you will find that there isn't much layout in an ePub
that makes much sense. You're mostly looking for legibility and the
inclusion of any graphics in a way that they are useful for whatever
reader one might use.
With a PDF, on the other hand, you have a wide range of layout decisions
you can make to enhance the appearance, and much more flexibility with
any included graphics.
