    Alright, here's the deal. I've been looking for something to read eBooks with, and I decided to use DSLibris. I have had no trouble at all using the Tidy online converter to convert my books from .html to .xhtml, found here.

    Until I tried to convert Ulysses, by James Joyce. I know what the problem is: The ebooks I've been converting were about 300 kb. This is 1,624 kb. Obviously the website can't handle it. I've downloaded Tidy, but I have no idea what I'm doing. So basically I'm looking for a step-by-step walkthrough of Tidy. All I need to know is how to convert from .html to .xhtml.

    I have searched, and found things like "tidy -asxhtml -o name.xhtml name.html" I have no idea what to do with that. I tried typing it into tidy.exe, substituting the names with the name of my file, but to no avail. All help is appreciated.

    Thanks guys!

    I've had some issues with that at first too, although it's worth the hassle.
    The best guide I found was from Arishon at Moonbooks (which is currently down).
    Through the magic of cached pages, this is what I could salvaged :

    Hope that helps, it did wonders for me.

    Thank you, Kano. This fixed my problem and helped me immensely. Kudos to you, sir. I hope you didn't just sign up to tell me that, and that you stick around in the GBAtemp community!

    Great post!

    Can anyone suggest a simple TXT to HTML converter? I don't have Word at the moment.

    I don't use it myself, but wouldn't Open Office do the job?
