1. Get a dictionary from http://sourceforge.net/projects/xdxf/files/dicts-XDXF/ and unpack it. You will need a tool capable of unpacking .bz2 archives. The Webster is in the file comn_sdict_axm05_webster_1913.tar.bz2.

2. Get the PocketBook converter: http://pocketbook.com.ua/file/DictionaryConverter.zip

3. Unpack it with all subdirs to the same directory as the dictionary

4. Run
converter.exe dict.xdxf eng

That's all! The resulting Webster is about 6.3 MBytes.
Thank you!

You can also get the converter at US website: www.pocketbookreader.com/downloads
