Dave Cramer is a Content Workflow Specialist at Hachette Book Group, where he develops standards, workflows, and tools for both print and eBook production. He started working with eBooks in 2001, while working for Stratford (now Jouve). This led to an interest in XML-based automated typesetting systems and an ongoing fascination with XSL. He created the first commercial EPUB files for Hachette, and has been heavily involved with EPUB ever since. Dave is a member of the IDPF EPUB 3 working group, and was co-editor of the specification on fixed-layout eBooks. He also chairs the Fixed Layouts for eBooks Working Group for the BISG Content Structure Committee, and is active in the AAP DIWG.
