EPUB, EPUB3.1, MOBI

EPUB is an e-book file format with the extension .epub which can be downloaded and read on devices like smartphones, tablets, computers, or e-readers. It is a free and open standard published by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). The term is short for electronic publication and is sometimes styled EPUB.

EPUB 3 is the latest version. By using HTML5 publications can contain video, audio, and interactivity, just like websites in modern browsers.
Apart from other enhancements when compared to earlier versions, the HTML5 standard broadly incorporates the following new syntactic elements:

  • Audio
  • Video
  • Canvas
  • Support for incorporating Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
  • Support for incorporating MathML (mathematical formulas)
  • CSS 3 support
All of these enhancements contribute in one way or the other to the EPUB 3 standard so as to deliver the following advantages:
  • Enhanced support for styling and layout:CSS3 support ensures that EPUB3 now separates content from the presentation mechanism. The way content is displayed could be managed based on user preferences, type of device being used, or even the geographic location of end users.
  • Global Language Support:One of the enhancements of HTML 5 was vertical writing (typically encountered in Japanese language publishing), and right-to-left spine progression (typically encountered in Japanese and Arabic language publishing). By incorporating HTML5, EPUB3 now opens up a prominent segment of the e-publishing market.
  • Enhanced Media Support: EPUB3 supports the inclusion of audio and video elements that make the content richer. Enhanced support for media overlays ensures that there is a more standardized, publication wide support for synchronization between text and audio voice over.
