ebook

Can anyone put me in touch with someone who has the current knowledge of converting an existing book design layout (done in in-design CS6) into an e-book for use on a Kindle reader?
I have just started reading up on it and realise that I might have to change the font/s I have used for the main body of the book and probably a whole lot of things. Luckily the book contains no images, but I do want to retain page ends so that Chapters start on fresh pages. There is also a bit of text styling (custom page numbers, chapter headers etc that may just not be possible on an e-reader.
I have been reading about exporting using fixed page layouts (something it seems you can only do with Creative Cloud though).

Calibri for an ebook

Hi,

I'm wanting rather urgently to know whether I can use Calibri roman and bold for an ebook. The Author at this stage is not yet sure whether the book will be sold in the apple store but there is a good chance it will be.

I have the fonts on my mac because they came with software and I will now purchase them, but can they be used for the ebook? I really hope so. I can officially purchase them here - http://www.fonts.com/search/all-fonts?searchtext=Calibri&SearchIn=all-fo...

To introduce myself briefly, I am a 22 year old Masters of Computer Graphic Design candidate in Whanganui, New Zealand. I am looking to start bit of a dialogue here: digital publication compared to print publication, with respect to the retention, enjoyment and legibility of the information we publish. I have included some questions to begin the discussion below. I would greatly appreciate your participation in this discussion, and hopefully it is something that we can all grow and learn from.
