there are several possible ways to do it, including Calibre (my preferred tool).

Calibre doesn't handle images very well. OTOH, PDF is the only ebook
format that can do images properly, without a lot of down and dirty
editing of the underlying formatting language.

Takes time and effort, even if the conversion tool works well.

Run some tests with SmashWords. For formats in which the output is of
acceptable quality, use them for the distribution.

SmashWord's conversion tool has some kinks that don't produce the
expected output, but it usually produces higher quality output than
using Calibre.

I had some major problem with the OOo plugin; I forget what it was,

There are at least two ePub plugins:
# One of them relies on the internal HTML engine of OOo/LibO. Between
the invalid HTML output, and that that HTML is for a different version
of HTML, than that defined in ePub specs, it fails more often than it
# One of them has installation issues with LibO.  I don't know how well
it plays with OOo.
