HTML Book Upload - Help Please

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I have my book in HTML saved as an HTML file and I have tested it in Dream Weaver - so I know my code is clean and readable.  When I try to load it in to PubIt I get the <html><p>etc visible.

Is there a bit of code I need on the top to get it to read the file?

 

If so does someone have it to share?

Thank you

Alas, PubIt seems to want an epub file, which is a whole degree of difficulty more than html.

 

I've seen posts here that suggest that you can upload a Word doc. Perhaps you can do a search for that.

If you use Word, use the 97 version, not the new one. Save it in the old Word. Otherwise, it won't go.

My first 10 or so books I uploaded in html with no issue of visible code. I did not like that my page breaks and other formatting did not function after upload so now I convert to epub via Sigil.

 

Converting is not difficult and not that time consuming, takes less than 10 minutes per book. And, pubit likes epub better than the other options.
