I think he means that the epub format specification is more sophisticated than the older mobi format that much of amazon's books are based on. Both formats are essential html documents but mobi doesn't properly support some html tags or complex structures.

For example, both Microsoft Word and Notepad are software but you can create better looking and more complex documents with the former.
