* How to convert text to an ebook *
Extract the text from the Quark file or other source. You can do this either by cut-and-paste (if the text is short); or by using File>Export in Quark to get an html file which Calibre will then convert to text.
Replace all curly quotes, double and single, by straight quotes.
Replace all space-dash-space by space-hyphen-space.
Check for other non-standard characters (accented characters, pluristops) and replace by simple characters.
