Nice! I like pdf and html, but will read epub with a FireFox addon (

Take a look at asciidoc. Documents, (e)books, etc., are written in text and than translated to html, pdf, epub, docbook, etc. I use it for documentation and notes, including math notes (w/the help of asciimathml js). Write it once in text without a lot of messy markup, but the final output can be any format. Good example at the link below --- although it supports most ebook readers, it looks like it doesn't support kindle.

I wrote it in LaTeX. Looks like it will be trickier to convert it to epub, but still shouldn't be too difficult. LaTeX is LateX afterall.

I googled "latex to epub" and there seem to be lots of solutions.
I'd like to buy this book, and I will if it's an EPUB, but I'm not going to buy a PDF book.
