Huge LRF

I have a huge (literally) problem.

I have created a mobi ebook (via mobipocket creator and html editor). After having build this book (about 800kb), I imported it in Calibre and tried to convert it to lrf. This took a very long time and resulted in a file weighing in at about 3.8 mega! Wow!
Is this size normal for this file format? I opened the book with the lrf viewer and it worked quite fine (took some time to load, though)
Trying to get a smaller file by importing the html and converting that resulted in a forever turning sand clock.
I am using the latest version of Calibre.
I would appreciate any help for this. Oh, and please keep it simple, I am not a programmer. I just want to be able to upload that book in lrf with a normal size.
The book is available in mobi on mobilread (May, Karl - Durch die Wueste) for anybody who wants to help me getting a better, smaller size. Thanks in advance!

Without embedding any fonts, the resulting LRF is 3,777 KB. The LRF does not view with eBook Library or LRFViewer. The reason I think is that the HTML used is abysmal. It's some of the worst HTML I have seen in a long time.

Unless you plan on sorting out this HTML code, my suggestion is to use Book Designer to convert it to LRTF after using Mobi2OEB to explode it

Yeah, I noticed that, too, now. I used Open Office to get some form on my text (like justify) and saved it as html. I'll never do that again ! I'll strip that and make a neat html. I had problems before, though, to import html in BD, maybe cause I do not use MS Office. So I guess it's Calibre for me. Thanks for the help.

You could try saving as RTF and using RTF2LRF to convert it.
