Yanceyware format please

I have a pile of books in the Yanceyware (.ybk) format that I would like to read on my iPhone or a Kindle. Currently these can only be read on Windows and Windows Mobile. There is no DRM on this format.

Can you please consider this as a source format?

A minimum requirement for this to even be possible is a ybk2html tool, but this does not seem to be available, see Turning YBK files back into HTML files.

I too came across this problem. I even suggested it to Kovid Goyal. He refused. So my solution for you is this:

1. Dowbload and install yancey desktop and put your books in the library.
2. Copy and paste the books into Sigil, or something, then do some re-touching.
3. Convert through calibre.

Hope this helps.
