Ebook Tip #4 The EPUB format requires UTF-8 (unicode) encoding


MS Word MenuWhen converting your MS Word document, this is an often overlooked detail

Tip 4:  The EPUB format requires UTF-8 (unicode) encoding; therefore, you must set the encoding to UTF-8 before saving your work as a filtered HTML document. To do that, click on the menu items in the following order:

 1.    Microsoft Office Word 2007 and 2010: Office Button > Word Options > Advanced > General > Web Options> Encoding > Unicode (UTF-8).

2.    Microsoft Office Word 2003: Tools > Options > General > Web Options > Encoding > Unicode (UTF-8).
