Don't know anything about any new (presumably proprietary) format -- but
a quick look at the HOWTOs held on this machine (just over half of all
those currently available) shows that in HTML format they take up 21 Mb.

Are you sure you really want to heft something like a 50Mb text file
around (under Windows, to boot); and recompile it at least once a month
to include latest additions?

And have you thought about indexing problems?

Just a few idle thoughts.
