Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Mapping paragraph styles to CSS tags, part of InDesign CS6: EPUB Kindle and iPad.
I want to talk about a very cool feature that InDesign CS6 has, it actually was added I believe in 5.5.…It's a little advanced for this title, but I think that those of you who have been creating…EPUBs already from InDesign or who know a bit about HTML or CSS or perhaps you're blessed…with a coworker who knows a lot about HTML and CSS.…I think you'll be very interested in this feature.…It's called mapping styles to CSS text.…Let's see what the problem is and why you would use that feature to help solve the problem.…
We have here very simple one-page document or we don't have any local formatting, and…we have a few different paragraph styles and character styles, okay.…Let's just go-ahead and export this to EPUB. I'll press Command or Ctrl +E.…We'll going to export it right to the desktop.…I already have a file there that we're going to replace that's perfectly fine.…We will leave everything at the default except here we don't need a local overrides or embeddable fonts.…So just CSS, Include Style Definitions, okay.…
