My company wants to move about 200 books that are about 250-500 pages into InDesign. They are currently stored in a database in XML format and we use CSS and PrinceXml to publish. I am able to import the XML into InDesign, but I haven't found a way to import the CSS styles. Is that possible?
As far as I know, there is no ability to import CSS into InDesign. When you export as EPUB, you have the option of using a CSS stylesheet to format the EPUB file.
It's been explained to me that there are too many differences between the way InDesign creates styles from the way CSS works to do such a thing. For example, in CSS you can define placement on the HTML or XHTML page in a way that's not possible in InDesign.
