This demonstration will show you how to use a free EPUB editor (Sigil) to style chapter openings in ways that aren’t usually supported when converting directly from Word. Using a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS), we will demonstrate styling drop caps, up caps, and small caps to set off your chapter openings. Chapter opening flourishes not only make your e-book stand out but may also increase reading comprehension by visually signifying chapter starts
