    InDesign CC need help with epub, Initial caps and indents

    Picturequest Level 1

      Hello gang!

       

      I don't have experience exporting epubs. I was given a book in Word format with all the images etc already in it. I've been playing with exporting for Kindle.

       

      1) The body text used a tab to indent the first line of a paragraph. That does not seem to transfer to epub. Any easy way for me to remove all those tabs, and applying a first line indent?

       

      I did not create the word doc, and the author did not conform to using styles:-( So I can't just change the body text style without effecting everything.

       

      2) There is a live text (not image) Initial cap. Any thoughts on creating Initial caps for epub? Should I create PNG versions and replace the font based Initial Cap with the image? Any other options.

       

      Is there a better font I can use to be able to "preview" the look in InDesign. The Doc used Baskerville Old Face.

       

      Thanks
