NewsAre we over-thinking EPUB? PinstaffTerrence Dorsey20-Jan-13 12:08 
While all content is trending towards CSS and JavaScript, the core technologies of the browser, it seems a little weird to position EPUB as being a collection of things that do something different from what browsers do. The nuance might not be clear so here goes... EPUB is essentially a collection of standards wrapped up inside a zip file with a few extra bits that ‘bind’ the content together. The extra bits give metadata and information needed for books including a table of contents, etc. Most of the standards wrapped up by this zip file are standards made for, or predominantly made for, browsers.
Why the e-book standards wars are starting to feel increasinly like the old (ongoing) browser wars.
