exactly, the key is "suitable HTML". I made some experiments in this
direction in the past using a very simple skin. I don't remember the
details, but the result was not exactly beautiful.

Using "cheap" shared web hosting, you usually can't install software,
and calibre is not part of a standard environment.

Currently I use a web downloader starting from a page list and save
one HTML file per page. Good for the indexed full text search engine
on a desktop machine, but on a mobile device, epub is better.

Since internet access is better available now, the problem is less
important today (for me).
