Nick, I've looked at the Gutenberg copy of this and it looks great. I would love a copy for the Sony and perhaps others would like a Mobipocket version, too. Would you happen to still have the BD file, if that's what you used to convert it? If so, could you post it? I would start with the original HTML but it looks to be a lot of work to get all the figures sized properly.

The .IMP versions were made form the Project Gutenberg source "14264-h.zip" which contains the .html and images (lores-18ppi and hires-30ppi). I did not change the source .html other than surround some of the Project Gutenberg filler with <pre> tags and ensure that the lores images were used. I did not modify the images.

I have made a Mobipocket version, but did not get good results making the Sony version using libprs500 v0.4.40. No images came through. I will post the Mobipocket version and you can use that one to convert to .html using Mobiperl and make a Sony version.

BTW, BD was not used throught this process!

Excellent! That was very nice of you to try, Nick. I only know that when I opened the HTML with BD, all of the figures were scaled tiny and I was having to rescale each image while maintaining the aspect ratio. Hopefully, I can avoid that somehow.

I tried using BD to produce a Sony version. While I got it to work, I think those "in the know" could do better. I will post my efforts, with the hopes that someone can improve it. I will include the (source) BD "lastfile" directory in the Sony post.
