converting multi-page HTML to Mobipocket

is there a way to convert multi-page HTML documents(multiple HTML files, 1 level deep) to the MOBI format needed for the kindle? I just tried it with Calibre 0.4.138 and it seems that the links to the same HTML page's tags works, but the link is pointed to a different HTML file doesn't work. the size of the converted MOBI file is similar to the combined size of the HTMLs(~4.2MB)

Is this a feature that hasn't been implemented or there is something i should configure to make it work?

thanks!

It should work "out of the box". If not there's liekly something else the matter. Try using relative links in the HTML files and remember to use the / character as the path separator

hmm... I tried a different method last night. I selected & added all the files(2nd option, all files & subfolders belong to single book) but it was soooo slow, after 15min or so i canceled it.
The first time when I try to convert the HTMLs to a book, I just selected "index.html" which contains the links to all the other files in the same folder.

VIM is like an onion. As you peel one layer you find more even better ones.

Although I did opt for Textmate on my Mac after agonizing over the $80 purchase for a few weeks.

haa... actually I don't think it's as bad as the rumor says. The trick I think is really to learn as much as possible right in the beginning, and not to learn it little bit at a time. I was faster editing in Vim than I was ever able to do in SciTE after 2 days.

hee... i'm catching up, just installed vimperator yesterday... the only thing i don't like about it is that it doesn't auto-complete the URL history as well as the native one. or am I missing something?

this is getting way off topic... btw what do you use to have a vim-like windows manager?
