News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Em Software's powerful InData cross-platform plug-in for InDesign is the gold standard for database publishing. Make your template in InDesign, point it at your data source, and click Start. Sit back and watch as it creates dozens or hundreds of pages entirely hands-off, even including things like graphics and running headers and footers, leaving you with a normal InDesign document. Use the coupon code idsecrets211 in their check-out page for 10% off — offer expires at the end of February!
>> PrePress Center sells eDocker, a wonderful utility program for any InDesign CS4 or CS5 user who exports files to SWF and wants to add page navigation and zoom controls in the browser, among other goodies. Go to http://www.edocker.com/indesignsecrets-offer/ (or enter the coupon code indes2011) for 20% off of the eDocker software.
>> Recosoft presents the new and exciting ID2Office product, which allows you export InDesign documents to formatted Word or PowerPoint files. Available in the spring. Check it out!

Errata: TextWrangler lets you open and browse EPUB content files without unzipping them first, but not edit them in place, contrary to what we said in the podcast, sorry! Use Sigil or Oxygen for that.
