There has been some discussion about creating EPUB e-books from
OpenOffice and LibreOffice.  One method I recently came across is to
use Sigil to create the EPUB from HTML.  OpenOffice and LibreOffice
can save in HTML format, which can then be used as a source for this
Perhaps better solutions can be found in using the elaix extension or by
saving as docxml and thenfeeding the result through pandoc
what about this extension
as eLaix also a extension who makes a faire export of Writerdoc to a Epub document , both extensions are written in Basic who makes them easy to change some code to your personal needs. Both extensions lacks a good handling of the exported images. (loss of cropping and color corrections) I am bussy to paste some code who can make them have a better image handling.

Writer2ePUB may work for text documents with fairly simple layouts. However, for something as complex as a user guide for LibreOffice, it leaves much to be desired. As I have mentioned in an earlier part of this thread (or an earlier thread with the same theme), using Calibre to convert a complex document from ODT to ePUB and the Sigil to clean up the styles does a much better job. There are still too many extra styles in the internal xhtml files that make up the zipped ePUB file, the latest Sigil version that contains Tidy does reduce the amount of editing required. The latest suggestion of using LibreOffice to convert an ODT document to HTML format and then using Sigil to convert that to ePUB. This preserves the lay out very well. However, the ODT graphics are converted to poor quality GIF files if the graphics are kept in frames. Actually, each entire frame (graphic and caption) is converted into a single GIF file.
