Inside epub

leave a comment »

I’ve started a series of articles at: that explore the International Digital Publishing Forum’s standards for epub documents.

Using F.Scott Fitzgerald’s short story The Curious Case of Benjamin Button I show how an epub ebook is put together by conforming with the Open Container Format, the Open Packaging Format, and the Open Publication Structure.

The articles should be of interest to content providers – authors and publishers – who want to know more about epub. I also plan to develop a C# model of the entities found in epub so developers will be able to open and manipulate epub publications.
