ePub (28/05/2012)

I’ve been playing around with ebooks today. It turns out that the epub format is just a zip file with HTML files inside it.

I found a tutorial on how to make them. On the iPad, at least, they can be very fussy – and if you’re not careful, they will look like shit.

Luckily there is an online file validator – nothing very sophisticated (it’s a bit like the old days of web design), but it’s quite fun.

I wonder how much ebooks are the future of the internet. Annoyingly the Kindle doesn’t support epub, but mobi files. I haven’t figured out what they are yet.
