How do I convert my A4 HTML books to A5 PDF?

Hi.

I've been having trouble with converting the files I have from proper viewing on my Iliad. Since zooming is not working in the PDF viewer yet and the HTML viewer doesn't provide page numbers, I need to make them about A5 format with a still readable font size.

Consider me stupid and help me out...^^

First, Congrats, ComanderROR,

Guessing here -- can you print the HTML into PDF with the page size set to the iLiad's screen size and no margins?

As a side note, any word as to the mAh capacity of the battery?

You mentioned, that u used Adobe Acrobat Pro?
Then do the following:
File -> Create PDF -> From Webpage (or from File, or from multiple files)
Choose webpage (or files)
Edit Settings: Page Layout: choose A5
OK and Create.

Thats it.

1100mAh! wow. That ought to run our USB LED lamp for something like 36 hours & 20 minutes ... if you don't turn pages, of course.

... say, Tribble ... where'd you get that number? Has yours arrived too, you sneaky rascal?

btw, i have another solution for you CommanderROR.

Using Firefox:
Extras -> Options -> Content -> Fonts & Colors -> Settings
There you can set a minimum Fontsize, which will be used for Print aswell.

Then use Acrobat Printer to print to A5 size paper.

Just set up a PDF printer using PDFCreator under Windows or CUPS under Linux.

And I assume there's already a Linux tool to resize a A4 PDF to a A5 one. Anyone knows?

It is a good idea to tell us if you are using Windows, Linux or MacOS when doing this kind of questions.

Don't know about PDF, but for Postscript (.ps). ps<->pdf is dead easy, because the "print to file" of all applications actually creates postscript files, and ps2pdf and pstopdf do ps->pdf.

Postscript scaling can be done with pstops.

works great. the margins left and right are too large, but it's ok for now.
