If you want to find out more about the epub standards created by the International Digital Publishing Forum, you might be interested in the series of articles I’m writing under the banner Inside Epub.

I have just added the latest article called A closer look at OPF which explores the Open Packaging Format document that comes with the free epub ebook The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, available from epubBooks.

The article explains how epub documents are described using <metadata> – data about data – and how they are packaged using a <manifest>. It also discusses the use of the <spine> element to specify the reading order of the enclosed content documents.
