As "tamouse" pointed out a while ago, there is also calibre's command 
line interface and pandoc http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/. I did some 
brief experiments using calibre, using the html output from PublishPDF 
on a big html file generated from a pmwiki trail page. It looks 
promising, but one needs the right html classes and a suitable css for 
best results. There are some sample epub css files around the web, but I 
haven't had an opportunity to explore these.
