Problem with HTMLs

I found that converting the free Lone Wolf Gamebooks the "larger" images don't make it to the .LRF.

Seems to be a Calibre error because the htmls are perfect in firefox and are "simple".

Have tried using Calibre GUI and html2lrf.exe but everytime the same result.

Anyone care to have a go?

Thanks as always Kovid.

Converted to epub but it crashes (causes reset) on my 505.

Any ideas?

Which set of HTML files are you trying to convert exactly?

This one:

It does convert with bookglutton properly. However the order of the pages, while the links work, is not correct. Not a big deal because the main reading part of the book is in order.

The htms already have a comprehensive TOC which links to a page with all the other links. So if I unzip and use Calibre and choose the TOC then things are in the right order but the larger pictures do not show.

Did you check the large illustrations?

If you go to the TOC choose list of illustrations - this will be the large ones (there are many illustrations which do work - my point is a handful of large ones don't work).

With Windows XP I just tested the epub files from both bookglutton and html2epub and here is what happened.

- the bookglutton one works very well
- the html2epub dies on loading (using mobipocket)

So on both XP and Vista (2 diff pc) html2epub and html2lrf cannot convert the file correctly.

In the case of html2epub the files are always corrupt and cannot even be loaded by a reader.

In the case of html2lrf the larger images don't show.

Yet bookglutton's epub maker works.

Are you using Linux?

There is no difference in conversion on windows and linux. After the reader crashes, try opening the file again, once it reboots. ANd see if you can view the epub file using calibre's viewer.

I redid the conversion and it can open in calibre's ebook viewer and seems fine.

I had tried opening the original conversion a few times on the 505 and it did not work. Will retry and report results.
