Hyperlinks and Formatting in HTML?

"John Turner the Bear😎"
Happy Saturday morning Gang!

We are having major thunderstorms right now…lots of rain!

I have created a book of about 400 pages that has hundreds of hyperlinks to tex, references, table of contents etc. Is there any app for the Mac that can export  the book to HTML and maintain the formatting? Ulysses will export the file and maintain the typeface but none of the rest of the formatting. Any suggestions?

Thanks all!

Which application have you used to create the book and what is the purpose of exporting it to HTML?

Hi Derek!

The HTML is for some friends who asked for it. The original links were created in Word. Quark will maintain the formatting, links etc. in a PFD or eBook but not in an HTML.

If the ebook is epub format, there is actually HTML inside it. You can rename it with a .zip extension, extract it, and you'll have a folder of HTML.

Hi John
So your workflow is – creating the text in MSWord placing it in Quark and then exporting it as an HTML document, but you don’t know how your friend wants to use it, is that right?
Cheers,
Derek

They just want the HTML. I’m just going to give them a PDF or eBook and leave it at that. I did make one HTML in Ulysses but is really ugly. But is functional and no web connection is necessary!

That’s not the way to create an ePub (FXL or Reflowable text) – it will be a mess!

But Quark will make a pretty eBook or PDF with the links intact.

Indeed you can export PDFs and ePubs from the recent editions of Quark, but you or someone was suggesting cracking open an ePub and extracting the HTML.

If the ultimate purpose is to produce professional quality reflowable text ePubs I would suggest using the facility within InDesign CC2015/2017.
And for converting ePub to the mobi format, the free Kindle Previewer.
For cracking open and adjusting the HTML/CMS I suggest Oxygen or BBEdit (for Mac).
For validating I suggest using FlightDeck: https://ebookflightdeck.com
