It would be very nice if this changes could go to the official Palm module (if this makes sense), so that the design on CPAN would be more clean, meaning no local copy of the Palm module. If somebody (e.g. tombe) can give any advice in that I would be grateful.
One change that would be welcome to the Palm module is a built in function to swap Unicode and UTF-8 characters for their identical extended ASCII equivalents for output to Mobi format. For English text there's no reason at all to be using Unicode but there's a ton of HTML e-books using it, especially for punctuation.
Anyone who needs a substitution list, I have one. I also have a program someone wrote to do substitutions of text strings in any plain text file. It's a bit buggy, can only handle a certain number of swapping pairs in its list. I have the C# source code if someone wants it.
