A quick google shows that markdown files can be converted to epub files
using pandoc tool. I can remember doing that.
But I'm not sure how pandoc would handle a series of files or know what
order they are in.

Can anyone on this list help? If not it may be one for the 80cc mailing

I think I saw you were using jekyll to generate pages.
If so, these links may also help. https://github.com/glejeune/jekyll-epub

I think that may be easier by exporting an epub from Booktype and
feeding it to pandoc to create mark up.

If you manage to create an epub let me know and we can test the next

nice one
