That's true. I prefer to write a makefile and convert the eps files outside
TeX. For the sam reason I would not use PDF to HTML conversion. Well
written latex file contains a structure and EPUB should also have a
structure. It is not easy to reconstruct the structure from mere font
changes in PDF. This is the very reason why I have not tried such tools at
