Well, not so much preferred, just a very easy option, and covers most
of the actual content bundles I've seen made available so far (apart

Thanks for the link! I'd never seen this mentioned before, do you know
if any deployments are currently using it? I've not tried it yet but
will test it and take a look.
There are two approaches if this is an Activity deployers are using
(or would like too):
1). Wrap the html content inside a web activity so that it becomes a
first class citizen in the Sugar interface (several Activities have
taken this approach already).
2). For the 0.86 roadmap, Browse is scheduled to get support for
opening zipped up web sites. Very similar to the old .xol but with
minimal authoring requirements (i.e it's just a zip of the file
structure in a web page/site), and will work right out of, and with
the Journal – tagging, searching and all that gorgeous Journal stuff.
