.lit is a closed, proprietary format that requires a Microsoft product to read.

Text, HTML and RTF are all open, public formats that (for the most part) provide all the benefits of LIT and can be read by just about anything.

Oh, ya, those formats don't support Digital Restriction Management - unlike LIT.

Only because lawyers say so. The end result is the same: You have a paper copy and an electronic copy.
