Well, I'm off to create this test .epub (~83MB) with these larger sized images.... and then later upload to my Gargantuan ebook server
EDIT: it actually is 83 MB in size
I've just uploaded here
a 80+ MB test ebook (.epub and .prc versions only) with all the Wikipedia entries HOWEVER the Letter B to Z entries have not yet been "cleaned up".
This ebook has at most 450x??? or ???x450 sized images with 16 colours and those images, being approx. 68 MB in total, comprise just over 80% of the ebook's filesize. Now that's a big ebook!
I did notice some quirkiness with the .prc version around the Indices for B to Z and the first entry for the '1906 San Francisco Earthquake', but otherwise it looks very good in the PC software Mobipocket Reader. I'll hopefully fix this later.
Anyone willing to max out their ebook reader and try one of these Gargantuan ebooks? If it survives the ordeal, just post here your experiences...
