Just open and edit it?

Have you actually tried it and had a problem?

Edit: popped to the post :-)

IIRC, most Tamil ebooks are not Unicode encoded. If you switch to Code View and see garbage characters, the .html files are simply not Unicode encoded. However, even if you manage to convert the text to Unicode, very few ebook readers will be able to display the books correctly, because Tamil uses vowel signs that logically follow the base character, but are displayed left or right of it.

For more information see this thread in the MR ePub forum.

It might be easier to create a PDF file optimized for 6" screens.
