Batch conversion html to lrf

I have lots of html pages that are by the same person and would love to batch convert these html files to lrf. I already have the libprs500 program. You can batch convert metadata, but you can't batch convert html. I think someone said that you have to use a command prompt, but I don't know how to do this. Can someone please give a step by step instructions to do this.

Thank you.

I haven't tried using libPRS500 to batch convert HTML, however, this page looks like it may have be of some help to that end.

If you add all the HTML files to the libprs500 library (note that if the HTML files link to other files or images you have to zip the file and all its references into a zip file), you can use the batch convert function in the GUI (click the arrow next tot he convert e-books button).

So first zip them up and then ad them to the ad them to where it says Authors and Titles? I did try that, but it still says not yet implemented.
