I am in the same boat, and if you could forward me help on using the html version it would be a great help my magazine is ODC Magazine http://offdachainmagazinee.com I was using the Page flip on Jalbum and acutually purchased it but it was way to hard to figure out. Anyone with help on this issue please drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking for a program that will generate the magazine from the JPEGS or PDFs and creat the online page flipping magazine so I can post it on our site.
This isn't an extension... but if you have Adobe inDesign, it's a
ctually pretty easy to make one. Then it will be exported as a swf.
There is a video tut on that process here

As a coincidence I've been working on a commercial DW Behavior called Portfolio that is used as a page turner. Here's how it will work...
The magazine or portfolio (or any document) is prepared in Adobe InDesign, then the pages are exported as jpg files which are automatically numbered. These files are then stored in a folder that is given the same name as the magazine.
Your HTML page can be designed as one or two single pages, or a single spread. You use image placeholders to display the pages, or put them inside AP Divs for more flexible positioning. Put forward and backward controls (graphics) on the page. Portfolio is then attached to these graphics as onClick events. Clicking the controls loads the next page(s) into the image placeholders. As for linking to the jpgs, you simply enter the folder name and the root name of the numbered jpgs and the images are loaded automatically by Portfolio.
I used the default InDesign export settings and got jpgs about 110K in size for an 8 1/2 x 11 document. 64 pages would be about 7MB. The jpg compression could be adjusted to make even smaller sizes.
The Behavior is very simple to set up. There are no fancy, page turning transition effects yet but maybe in a future revision.
If this Is the sort of thing everyone's looking for let me know. I'll speed up the work.
Something I would like to add to my above reply.
I tested the first draft of this Behavior in Firefox, with a magazine I designed using InDesign. Portfolio seems to work fine. The HTML page was set up as a spread using two single pages. As you view one spread, the next one is pre-cached in the background making the pages snap on. The browser's zoom in and out feature allowed me to get in close to the text.
The 16 page magazing I created was 1.7 mb for medium quality jpg images. A 64 page mag would run about 6.5 mb. The size of a document doesn't really matter because the pages are only downloaded as they're needed. Don't have to wait for the entire mag to download.
