But HTML and XHTML have been around for much longer than that.

Mobipocket is based on HTML and the earlier OEB formats.
If you think two months between a standard being published, and a product being delivered means that it could have been adopted in that product, you have a very poor notion of product development and the time taken to get publishers to adopt a new format.

When Amazon adopted Mobipocket it was the major ebook format.
