Converting Project Runeberg?

I've noticed that many of Project Runebergs books are downloadable in various formats, for ex. http://runeberg.org/download.pl?mode...ork=maristuart If I want to convert this into epub which would be the best source, the text or the HTML?
And then use Sigil for the conversion?

If the HTML is fairly clean then this is the best source. TXT will lose all formatting information. Although some TXT conventions can include limit formatting it is less that HTML can do.
