FORM INPUT: Cute idea, but nevertheless useful

A while back I compiled a series of .html stories into one ebook i.e. merged them.

If I chose to read them sequentially, then I could easily keep track of those that I had read and those waiting their turn. But, I knew I wouldn't be so disciplined.

Sooo...

I used the <form> construct and designed a checklist of sorts and placed it at the beginning of the ebook compilation.

Surprisingly, the input choices are remembered after you power down and will only be erased if you choose to Erase Markups! If viewed via the PC viewer, you will note it saves a 'FormsReport.txt' file, which is used to facility this "memory".

I have adapted that idea for the Complete Works of Charles Dickens, here at mobileread.com and produced the attached ebooks (the one ending with '_1200.imp' is for the REB 1200; the other one for the EBW 1150).

I have also included the source in the attached .zip to allow you to embed this into future ebook compilations.

Enjoy!

The sample .html is not very functional. It could be easily augumented by linking (via <a href>) the text after the checkbox to the .html, just like a table of contents does.

Code:
<form><BR>
<input type="checkbox" name="1"><A HREF="story1.html">Story1</A><small> by Author1 (<i>genre</i>)</small><BR>
<input type="checkbox" name="2"><A HREF="story2.html">Story2</A><small> by Author2 (<i>genre</i>)</small><BR>
<input type="checkbox" name="3"><A HREF="story3.html">Story3</A><small> by Author3 (<i>genre</i>)</small><BR>
</form>
