html2mobi - html formatting

Hello there,

I would like to convert HTML text into Mobi (html2mobi), and read it in my kindle2.
The problem is formatting the text, like pagebreak for example.
Can any one tell me a wiki/tutorial to make a beatifull text formatting in Mobi.

Thanks

In the official Mobipocket site you can find which tags are supported and some further advice (in the menu on the left side). Pagebreaks can be found in the "Mobipocket custom tags" section: <mbp:pagebreak/>.

Note that, in general, you want to keep the HTML as simple as possible, in particular don't use any CSS, that's not supported, and avoid nesting elements. For specifying vertical separation above an element, use the "height" attribute.
