After further research, it's the website where the books are hosted that apparently is causing a problem, rather than the software on the phone.

To dig a little further into the problem, I got a new Motorola Atrix with Android 2.3.4 installed. Using Aldiko with the standard Android browser, I'm able to visit a site like epubBooks and download, save, and open one of their free books. I then had the school upload that same file to the school's website, and when I try to open it using the phone, the file shows up as text.

I did try Opera, and it wouldn't connect the file as an ePUB either (Opera thinks the file is a ZIP file, which technically it is, even though it has the epub extension).

Anyone have an idea about what Android wants in an eBook website that iPhones don't care about?

Thanks
