Hoping to get some advice on a PressBooks project, the goal of which is to redevelop and reprint an older publication. Thanks in advance for reading and for any feedback.
It’s a fairly straightforward project except for one thing: the authors really want to include original front matter, including the TOC, as a way of archiving and honoring the original publication.
The material I am working from are galleys of the original publication in MS Word; the TOC has some very particular formatting and the authors want to keep the PressBooks version of the original TOC as close to the original as possible. This definitely cannot be achieved just by coping and pasting text to make a new part of front matter and is looking pretty rough with import also.
Any advice on incorporating this original TOC without a huge amount of tinkering in the html editor? Maybe this would involve embedding it as media, perhaps PDF? Thanks in advance.
