ePub with ease

Ah... I went through so much struggle last year when I worked to create an ePub book for my iPhone.  Today I made one from a Pages file in a matter of moments. Step one, begin with a file where you've used styles to format chapter titles, headings, subheadings, body text, and so on. Step two, if you created a table of contents for your paper version using the Pages TOC generator, delete that. Step three, put a cover image on your first page. Step four, export as ePub file, choosing the use-first-page-as-cover option. And there you are.  And then I put the new book on my iPhone without needing to sync it, by using Dropbox. Very satisfying when these things that ought to work actually do work in practice.
