It works pretty well, but there are some minor issues. The issues might be related more to differences between individual ereader apps in supporting the 3.0.1 spec than anything I might have done wrong in the serialization process (the file validates according to a script I've been running)…

It's highly LOD aware and is capable of posting to a SPARQL endpoint so that information can be accessed from other archival frameworks and integrated into projects like Pelagios.
I wrote a similar thing a number of years ago, and it was implemented as Alex Lite.  I started out with TEI files, and then transformed them into a number of derivatives: simple HTML, “cooler” HTML, PDF, and ePub. I think my ePub version was somewhere around 2.0. The “framework” was written in Perl, of course. ;-) The whole of a Alex Lite was designed to be given away on CD or as an instant website. (“Just add water."). The hard part of the whole thing was the creation of the TEI files in the first place. After that, everything was relatively easy.
