Hello - I am formatting ebooks for the ministry I work for and I have a formatting issue. I am using Dreamweaver CC 2018. I having been trying different ways and my head is spinning. I have been learning as I go with coding and formatting. If someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it. I have attached a Word file that contains two samples of what I need to format. 

 

Thank you!

Hi @arieloffice,

If you care to embed an image into your web reply, I'll look at it.  But I'm not interested in downloading and opening untrusted Word docs from a public forum, sorry.

 

E-books have limitations depending on which devices you're creating this for.  I suggest you ask whoever is publishing your e-book if what you want to do is possible.

 

For example, Amazon Kindle Direct Publish Guidelines

Hi! Thank you for responding. I have uploaded a image of the samples I need help with. Unfortunately I am also the one who converts the files to epub and mobi file formats, so I am not sure if it is possible. 

I create the epub in Sigil and save as a epub then convert to mobi through Kindle Previewer. 

 

Thanks,

Becky Hodges

if it is just about Title (I mean if you don't have any paragtaph in between each title), you can run with nested list, and give a margin to each UL element

<ul>
    <li>A.    <em>all </em>[kol] <em>the land </em>(v. 43)
        <ul>
            <li> B.    <em>according  to all </em>[kol]<em> that he swore unto their fathers </em>(v. 44a)
                <ul>
                    <li> C.    <em>there  stood not a man of all </em>[kol]<em> their enemies before them </em>(v. 44b)</li>
                    <li> C.    <em>Jehovah  delivered all </em>[kol] <em>their enemies into their hand </em>(v. 44c)</li>
                </ul>
            </li>
            <li> B.    <em>There  failed not aught of any </em>[kol]<em> good thing </em>(&ldquo;Not one of all the Lord&rsquo;s  good promises to Israel failed,&rdquo; v. 45a)</li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li> A.    <em>all </em>[kol] <em>came to pass </em>(v. 45b)</li>
</ul>

 

if you need to get a paragraph, and although the use of list is also appropriate, confusion can quickly take over, so you can run with nested section which will get margin

the CSS will be kind of

<style>
    *[class^="section"] {
        margin-left:3em;
    }
</style>

and the HTML as

 

<div class="section_a">
    <h2>A. The  Transjordanians built an altar (v. 10). </h2>
    <p>Paragraph</p>
    <div class="section_b">
        <h2> B. The  Cisjordanians threatened war (vv. 11-12). </h2>
        <p>Paragraph</p>
        <div class="section_c">
            <h2> C. The  Cisjordanians sent a delegation (vv. 13-15a). </h2>
            <p>Paragraph</p>
            <div class="section_d">
                <h2> D. The  delegation accused the Transjordanians (vv. 15b-20). </h2>
                <p>Paragraph</p>
                <div class="section_e">
                    <h2> E. The  Transjordanians swore innocence (vv. 21-23).</h2>
                    <p>Paragraph</p>
                    <div class="section_f">
                        <h2> F. The  Transjordanians explained the altar (v. 27a).</h2>
                        <p>Paragraph</p>
                        <h2> F. The  Transjordanians explained the altar (vv. 27b-28). </h2>
                        <p>Paragraph</p>
                    </div>
                </div>
                <div class="section_e">
                    <h2> E. The  Transjordanians were innocent (v. 29). </h2>
                    <p>Paragraph</p>
                </div>
            </div>
            <div class="section_d">
                <h2> D. The  delegation accepted the Transjordanian explanation (vv. 30-31).</h2>
                <p>Paragraph</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <h2> C. The  Cisjordanian delegation returned home (v. 32).</h2>
        <p>Paragraph</p>
        <h2> B. The  Cisjordanians withdrew their threat (v. 33). </h2>
        <p>Paragraph</p>
    </div>
    <h2> A. The  Transjordanians named the altar (v. 34).</h2>
    <p>Paragraph</p>
</div>

Thank you so much! I haven't had the chance to try it as the formatting I do for the ebooks is done after my main job with the ministry is done. But it looks good and looks like it will work.

 

I really do appreciate it. I am a newbie to this as far as finding out new coding.

 

Have a great day!

Becky
