With the availability of Wikipedia dumps I'm searching for the best way to serve these and browse them in a web browser locally on the Z.

There has been some discussion - recent - of a user using wiki2static.pl to convert Wiki dumps and using a squashfs file image to view them on a Zaurus. However the dump format is new now, XML I think.

So I'd like to ask whether anyone is doing it and what are you using for this. I've seen this which seems like a good choice, since I'm already running LAMP on the Z. However you don't get images...

Any recommendations on what the best way to do it on the Z? Obviously it would have to be a squashfs image in order to fit the data on a card. But how to do it? Like the above post? Convert on a PC to a MySQL format? Anyone doing it this way or another?
