just cause one group makes something and says.... THIS is a standard... it doesn't actually mean people will recognize it as so.

and in fact most hardware makers are just laughing at it. Amazon is a member of the IDPF... yet they do not even follow it...

I think epub is laughable. i dobut it will ever become a standard in the industry.

no worries desertgrandma, it I saw someone attacking the kindle I would defend it too.. I love the kindle.. if only it were smaller.

Look at the IDPF forums to see how serious they take it.. the most posting member is a spammer trying to sell hacked software and its been sitting there for over a month.
