As you say, HTML is one of the best formats if you want to avoid vendor lock-in. Some of the posters of e-books avoid HTML because it is easy for moochers to take the cleaned-up HTML, convert it to a DRMed format and charge for the result. They put in the work, so whatever restrictions they want are ok. This does not at all imply that you should not post HTML, and I encourage you to continue to do so. Thanks for the Barsoom series, it works very nicely with FBReader and, as DMcCunney mentioned, simple HTML is an excellent starting point for Plucker.
