As we discussed back in December, I've started to work on
converting SAMM into document formats that would be readable on
ebook reader devices. I've written a Python script to convert SAMM
XML file into a set of source files (HTML, OPF, NCX) that can be
converted into any ebook format.
The actual conversion is currently left to the user - i.e. myself
as Kindle user I'm running mobigen.exe to convert the source files
into MOBI file. It should be similiar in case of EPUB and other
These files are now available here:
Please test & comment.
One comment I have on the SAMM XML file is that it would help a lot
if front-matter section was structured - i.e. authors, license, url
etc were all listed in separate XML branches. Currently they're
dumped in one big content section which makes extraction of this
data a bit of guess game.
Future work would probably be mostly manual - embedding some of the
pictures from PDF into the ebook version and improving readability
of some sections.
