I'll try using tex4ht (as also suggested by Martin) and see how close to
usable the result is.

I realise that it's really quite a hard problem to go from input that's
supposed to define real typography to something that's basically mark-up; I
have several quite low-level macros to handle some special cases, and I'll
be quite surprised if they they transfer intelligently -- but I'm hoping.

Google turned up zero hits on "tex2epub", and I tried a few other
reasonable searches but couldn't discover anything useful :-(
