Style Sheets

Use them.

Whether you’re planning to create a book for print or ebook, you need to learn to use style sheets and use them well. You’ll save yourself a ton of time and money by doing this one thing. Not only do production people use style sheets to assure all the text in your book is consistent for printing, ebooks are written in HTML and use a CSS (cascading style sheets) file to describe the attributes of your book. When you use appropriate styles in Word or Open Office (or your word processor of choice), those styles can easily be translated into whatever software is being used to create your final product..
