Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Mapping text styles to HTML and CSS tags, part of InDesign CC: EPUB Fundamentals.

First, let's make sure that we understand the basics…of what's happening even if we don't do that.…When you export to e-pub In-design…converts these paragraph and character styles.…Two css cascading styles in one document called the css file.…And then inside…the html file that it creates that has…the content each entry, every paragraph, every subhead,…every character style is pre, surrounded by tags…that call on the name of that css style.…
Let's take a quick peek to see how that works.…I'll export this to e-pub.…And, we'll just leave everything at the default.…
