Default ePub editing with Sigil


Sigil is supposed to be a program for editing and cleaning up files that have been converted from other formats into ePub2 or ePub3. Has anyone had any experience with it? I'm working on a book that I hope to publish in an ePub version, and I have found that various means of converting a Word .docx file to ePub seem to all be imperfect -- and the confounding part is that no two of them screw up the same things. So the best I can look forward to is figuring out which method does the "least bad" job, and then use something -- like perhaps Sigil -- to tweak to resultant ePub file.

FWIW, of the several converters I have tried, the free Word to ePub converter that Microsoft puts out is -- hands down -- the worst of the bunch. Absolutely terrible.
