Description[edit]

This wiki is set up for the EPUB Maintenance Group. If you are on that list, you own this wiki. (Note: visitors who create an account may create issues and post comments.) Members have the ability to change anything you see here. That doesn't mean, however, that you should. Be respectful of the work of others. Changes should be made collaboratively. This wiki is an open environment and you can easily create new pages to show off your own work. You may also want to modify your preferences to set your editing options, timezone, and other options.

Background[edit]

.epub is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and publications.

.epub is composed of three open standards, the Open Publication Structure (OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF) and Open Container Format (OCF), produced by the IDPF.

EPUB allows publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications. The Open eBook Publication Structure or OEB, originally produced in 1999, is the precursor to OPS.

The IDPF and DAISY[edit]

The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) in the USA has accepted the offer from the DAISY Consortium, a founding member of the IDPF registered as an Association in Switzerland, to assist in the maintenance of the IDPF Standards. The DAISY Consortium hosts the wiki.
