HTML converts to ZIP?

Any attempt to add a book in HTML format to the library in Calibre results in creating a ZIP file that contains files called metadata.opf and content plus a folder called content that contains a file called resources and my original HTML file.

I am sure I must be missing something, but how do I add the darned book/file to the library?

calibre automatically follows the links in the HTML file and adds all referenced files to the ZIP file. You can then convert the ZIP file to an ebooks format.
