Subject: RE: [dita] EPUB for DITA 1.2 Spec


Great news. It's impressive that you can process such a large document.

When you have a copy posted, I'd like to try it out.

I am a bit confused about your comment about ZIP compression. An epub
file is itself a zip file, and the only uncompressed part is the
mimetype file, so I'm not sure what you mean about epub not allowing zip
