Thanks, though, obviously, that's not the answer I was hoping for. But, given that, can either of the 2 programs (mobi2mobi or the java tool) be used to change ONLY the cdetype, and absolutely nothing else?
Or, put another way, can any of these program be set to do absolutely no conversion whatsoever (other than changing some metadata)?
I'll probably just go ahead and try them, but I'd like to know if there's even a chance. My guess is that if they touch the html at all, the kf8 stuff will be lost (most especially the CSS stuff like position:absolute; -- do these conversion programs normally deal with position:absolute?)
