Kobo Glo Dictionary - Oxford/Collins?

Hello,

I managed to follow a post I found on here to add another dictionary to my Kobo Glo. However, I would really like a Oxford or Collins dictionary, does anybody have this is the correct format?

The dictionary (as far as I can make out) needs to be in html format, and it's a zipped file that you rename and put on your Kobo.

Sorry if I'm not making much sense, but if anyone can help me to replace the crappy Merriam-Webster dictionary with an Oxford or Collins, it would be amazing!!! It's the only thing I dislike about my Kobo!
