|XMLmind Ebook Compiler|
All in all, ebookc is an authoring and publishing tool nearly as powerful as DITA or DocBook and their advanced conversion toolkits, but being based on HTML and on CSS, it is much easier to learn, use and customize. Moreover you can create with it ebooks which are more interactive (audio, video, slide shows, multiple-choice questions, etc) than those created using DITA or DocBook.
Reading article "HTML5 as an alternative to DITA and DocBook" should convince you to adopt ebookc.
