Keeping Up with InDesign EPUB Export

Beginning with InDesign CS5.5, the InDesign team has been progressing with great determination to making EPUB export a tool which would export most (and for many documents all) of the code to create a good EPUB. Each version, Douglas Waterfall, Architect of InDesign Engineering, and his top flight engineers have been making great progress. However, to make use of this, you need up-to-date information about InDesign EPUB export.
