Dave Cramer

Senior Digital Publishing Technology Specialist, Hachette Book Group

Dave Cramer has been making eBooks for fifteen years, and complaining about ebook standards for nearly as long. He was co-editor of the IDPF specification on fixed-layout eBooks, but in recent years has become heavily involved with the W3C and web standards, editing several specs for the CSS Working Group and writing “Requirements for Latin Text Layout and Pagination” for the Digital Publishing Interest Group.

He dreams of bringing the rich history of print design and typography to ebooks and the web.
