I'm in the process of splitting a 9 book omnibus right now. The original file was 11 MB....which is certainly not the largest I've ever seen, but it was too large for my tastes. Plus... I have multiple ebooks being read at a time (my personal books, ones I'm reading to the grandkids, reference books, etc.) and constantly switching between large epubs was really painful...in a milisecond-I-want-my-stuff-NOW kinda way.

I certainly haven't looked at any kind of programming to do this... but, if there isn't a specific ID for the link to point at, then it defaults to the top of the page, doesn't it? So:
Code:
no ID = <body><h1 style="display:none" title="Howdy" />

just my .02

- cleaning up a book (from Project Gutenberg) which was very badly formatted to begin with.

As for the reason someone would have for doing any of these, in my case most of the time it's because that is what the client (a publisher) has hired me to do.
A publisher hires you to clean up Gutenberg books??

I get paid to fixup/update Public Domain (or CC-BY) ebooks all the time + combine chapters from various sources.

Example: I've done dozens of "Best of Topic X" compilations. And just a few weeks ago I worked on a book that combined articles written over 40+ years.

Of course, I regex everything into clean/sensible code (headings) + normalize everything within a book to be consistent... but if you're less meticulous about your code...

Yes, dear, but you're doing specific books for a specific entity. No?
