Mobi printer driver

Does anyone know of a printer driver that prints to a .mobi format file, similar to that done by a number of freeware drivers that print to PDF format files?

That would make it much easier to put personal documents on to my Kindle.

Great options would include the ability to preview it in an appropriate sized window, and zooming/scaling options for pictures.

Thanks.

That would be theoretically possible, but the output would be about what you get out of converting a PDF to a Mobipocket book. In general you'll have much better results doing a format-specific conversion which retains the reflowablity of the text.

I think what you may want is MobiPocket Creator. It's not a printer driver but it will help you create Mobi books from several other formats.
