Lightbulb E-Book Conversion Tool

I don't know if you guy's are aware but the IPhone / Touch has a book reader called Stanza. The developers have produced a PC tool that converts a whole lot of eBook types to others eg. LIT to HTML, Adobe, eReader, Word etc, etc
The best bit is it's free, so it's a great investment

Sorry if I'm repeating this

You can get it from here http://www.lexcycle.com/

Good one. You know, we have an integrated search engine here. Try it out with "Stanza"

I've heard Stanza removes all formatting (italics, bold, pictures etc.) and apparently it was posed as a "feature". Is it still doing that?

I tried the search feature but 3 trillion results so took the easy way out and posted it instead

I formatted a Word doc and all screwed and you can't read it, then save the doc as RTF and you could read it but no longer formatted eg. no bold, italic and tabs, but still readable

Yes, I opened a pdf in stanza desktop and all the formatting is gone. In fact, even some paragraph breaks are gone.
Sheesh
