Slackware manpages to PDA?

Hey all. I have a Palm Tungsten E running Palm OS ver 5. I have tried going to AvantGo to get my overal goal accomplished to no avail. The problem is that I want to get the linux manpages onto my Palm PDA device for reference purposes. I have more than enough memory so that isn't a concern. I just need to be able to either code a page and upload to my PDA or find a site with the manpages already on it and let AvantGo Subscription Channel take over or something. The sad part about AvantGo is that they are a browser, but don't allow you to just upload your own page. I know part of the reason has to be that the code won't be resolution-compliant, but I'm no stranger to HTML and don't believe I'd have a hard time getting this done. The Quick Install icon on both Windows and Mac will not upload the html file I've created since, as it states, it's not a Palm-compliant file. I've tried other third-party utilities such as Plucker and "Missing Sync" for OS X, but neither seem to offer what I need. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for that. I've been to before but didn't realize the translated guides before. I'm still a bit stuck on how to manually code a page (320 resolution for Palms?) and get it to the PDA. I have Plucker and have uploaded some of those translated guides, but I'm wanting to create my own. I guess there's some sort of way to view the source of these created guides for the Palm. Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction for getting this done?
