Post Clean and compress HTML before making ebook

Many ebook producers collect resources from web pages. But lots of work is still needed to compose these raw meterials into an elegant ebook.

Here, I would like to recommend a small tools,
HTML Page Cleaner 2.2
This tool is designed for collected web pages. You can clean up the pages by removing all useless elements, from javascript, forms to weblinks.

I ever made some news collection for our company from some certain site.
The result really looks like a book, at least much better than sending these webpages directly to my manager.
I also made some chm ebook for myself from wikipedia and other website I am interested in. I made my own ebooks, fairly good.
So if you have a hobby of collecting information from web, you can try this tool before compiling them.

This tool can be downloaded from www.htmlcleaner.com or by searching in download.com.
I'm still using MS HTML Help WorkShop as chm compiler which can also be downloaded from download.com.
Clean the webpages, then compile them, it's an easy way to make your ebook more professional.

At last, please do not publish you ebook by collecting copyright-protected web pages.

There is also a plugin for MS Word from Microsoft that can be set to various levels of strippage. I generally set it to strip out almost everything, resulting in a file with no styles or cruft, beyond headings, bold and italic.

Can't find this plugin either.
I am doing the stripping with notepad++ and regular expressions. Would be nice to have a faster way ...
