That's basically true, yes. There's a header in the PDB file (a four character string) which specifies what type of data the file contains (eg "DOC " for a PalmDoc format eBook, but no way to tell other than by looking inside the file. Once you've loaded the file onto a Palm, the Palm knows what to do with it, because it reads the header.
