Still too big to be useful.

If I exclude images, then the resulting filesizes are: 23 MB .imp, 14 MB .epub and 16 MB .prc (stnd).
much more useable...

I'll experiment a bit more and see if using the Wikipedia 2006 CD source directly instead of the plucker extracted .html/images works just as good or better.

Stay tuned...
Some HUGE .prc, .epub and REB1200 .imp ebooks made from that 2006 Wikipedia CD Selection from the SOS Children website.

If I exclude images, then the resulting ebook filesizes are: 22 MB REB1200 .imp, 12 MB .epub and 9 MB .prc (high-compression) and may be much more useful. A 15 MB .prc (standard compression) is also available for those readers that cannot handle high (Huff-Dic) compression.

Just a test... ...Try this for more previews of my 2006 Wikipedia work-in-progress ebooks ...
