Store and read HTML files on the Kindle 2 #

UPDATE: Sorry, just realized that this is essentially a dupe of Reading HTML files on a Kindle from last year.

The long (and battery-draining) way:
  1. Copy .html files to a new top level directory, e.g., "html"
  2. Launch Basic Web (wireless must be enabled) and enter URL like file:///mnt/us/html/file.html
The short way:
  1. Change file extension from .html to .txt before copying to "documents" on the Kindle
  2. That's it! Just open your file from the Kindle home screen - basic formatting (h1, p, i, etc) is preserved.
