This thesis project shows why e-book editors are needed and presents the creation and implementation of a specific e-book editor application.

Due to the growing popularity of e-books it becomes necessary to have e-book editor softwares. The traditional applications are not suitable for this purpose, because they are not supporting the special structure and formatting of an e-book document. It means, it is needed to make editors which are following these specialties. The purpose of the the-sis is to create an application, that satisfies all these requirements.

The supported e-book format by the application is ePUB, because it is popular and compatible with many e-book devices. This specific format has a great impact on the design of the software, it has been adjusted to the details of ePUB. For example the text editor area is actually an HTML editor component, because ePUB stores the texts in HTML format.

The basic principles of the application are the clear user interface and the easy usability. The method of the editing has been made, that it does not need any knowledge about ePUB format. By this feature any user can use this software.

At the end there is a part which evaluates the application by its performance and usabil-ity. This chapter also shows the weak points and the strengths, while comparing it to other e-book specialized editors.
