adding epub files for an ebook app

Has anyone had any luck adding epub files to their app? Is there an easy way for an amateur to do this? thanks Paul

Hmmm, well I've added PDFs, and it is very easy, Is an epud file any different, I mean is there a difference between a pdf and a epub?

Yes they are very different. A epub is effectively a container file (zipped) that includes an xml file, some css files, fonts, metadata etc.

I believe you can do this in BTv1.5 and BTv2.0. BTv1.4 does have a custom HTML doc that would possibly allow this. Fred If you have a sample I'd be glad to test it.

Thanks. Here is an epub file (I hope the link works): (http://ppl.ug/mckJIjj_tzY/). It is a pretty basic file. If you change the extention to zip you can unzipp it and see the structure. thanks Paul

@Fred I just wanted to know whether you succeeded testing adding an epub file to any particular app? I would be grateful if you will explain me how to do this if you already succeeded. @Paulashton, the link you gave is broken.
