I believe we are talking about a widely adopted "standard," capable of displaying all current publication formats, from fashion magazines to novels.

The idea is, that when I get a publication, be it my Nylon magazine subscription, or an Updike novel, I should be able to view it on my desktop, and send it to my wife, to view on her MacBook.

This includes the ability to view it on my large-screen e-reader (albeit in BW, due to current technology.) But also, in a couple of years, when there are color reading devices, I'd like to be able to use the SAME file I have now.

The only such "standard" I am aware of, is PDF.
