Ebook format

Has anyone given thought to making the campaign rules available on .mobi format or some other ebook reader format? It would be nice to access the content on my Kindle.

Charlie mentioned that last summer and I did some preliminary tests of exporting out of InDesign and then using Calibre to try and process the result into different ebook formats. The results were mixed. Some worked okay, but others misinterpreted the layout and jumbled things.

I think what would have to happen is for me to take the text and try to drop it into a new document and then rebuild from there, probably with minimal graphics, to get everything to function. It's definitely something that I'm going to look into again once I get time after the Companion is done.

If anyone has experience with the newest Creative Suite, does it have any better tools for exporting to ebook formats?
