Compressed size is about 35-40% of uncompressed size.

If I get the file in a non-epub format, I use Calibre to convert to epub and then clean up the file with Sigil. Takes a bit longer but makes my reading experience much better. Just one item with Sigil -- Save! Often!! The search and replace code tends to crash and dump all your work since the last save.
I definitely need to try Sigil, it may com handy to create the index on an anthology that I'm reading...
