Geoff, i can't help but wonder, did you read this thread ? epub is the industry standard, in the technical sense :
Quote:
A technical standard is an established norm or requirement. It is usually a formal document that establishes uniform engineering or technical criteria, methods, processes and practices.
it is a standard accepted by the publishing industry, and defined by the International Digital Publishing Forum (idpf), which is a group mandated to define it, composed of various members of the publishing industry. the idpf website describes it this way :

Quote:
What is EPUB, .epub, OPS/OCF & OEB?

".epub" is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and publications. ".epub" is composed of three open standards, the Open Publication Structure (OPS), Open Packaging Format (OPF) and Open Container Format (OCF), produced by the IDPF. "EPUB" allows publishers to produce and send a single digital publication file through distribution and offers consumers interoperability between software/hardware for unencrypted reflowable digital books and other publications. The Open eBook Publication Structure or "OEB", originally produced in 1999, is the precursor to OPS.
