EZ Reader Pro and compression formats

Hi,
Just posting my findings here, kind of like a thread for my own memory,but also for those seeking to play around with the EZ Reader Pro, or are just interested in the results.

I have an HTML file, and compress it with 7z.
The results are posted below of:
- Archive Format, Compression method, Dictionary size, Word Size.

The following settings work:
- Zip, (any), deflate, 32kB, (any)
- Zip, (any), deflate64, 64kB, (any)

With following settings the archive opens, but the HTML within the ZIP can't be opened:
- Zip, (any), bzip2, (any)
- Zip, (any), LZMA, (any), (any)
- Zip, (any), PPMd, (any), (any)

The following file formats are not supported:
- bzip2, tar, gz, wim, 7z, xz
Renaming them to zip does not work.

Compressing with Winrar gives the following results:
- Zip: Any .zip works; archive can be opened, HTML can be read.
- Rar: Any RAR archive opens, but HTML can not be extracted.
Renaming RAR files to zip does not work.

Hyperlinks and superscript (sup) are not supported within HTML documents.

Why worry?

4G SDcard has 3900 (EPUB) books with covers: 50% capacity used

4G SD Cards are $9 at Fry's, cheaper online when you include in another order (postage will get you otherwise).

no one worries; these are just facts and findings of the Astak EzReader Pro's capabilities.
It's perhaps part of my search to find the 'perfect' format of compression for ebooks on this device.

Question... Why is it you are so worried about compressing your eBooks as small as possible?

Research!
To know as much as I can, to find solutions, to make the best epub I can make!
I hope there's nothing wrong with that?

I take pleasure in saving a few kB in my file, and have e-readers display pages 0.01ms faster than others :P

By nature I'm a technology freak, I kick on knowing the mechanics and technics behind everything. Now also ebooks. It's a deficiency in my character I suppose :-)

This biggest problem I have with zip archives is that a bookmark won't work. It will not remember where you are inside the book inside the zip. So I use folders to do grouping instead but cbz would have been nice.
