And if you strip Kindle DRM and convert it to ePub, that is also standard ePub.

But other then B&N & Apple, all other reflowable ePub (with Adobe Adept DRM) is standard ePub. Outside the USA, there is no B&N and Apple selling their flavors of things
That simply isn't true.
The iBookstore is not US-only.

But you have made a specific claim (that more ePub books are sold than Kindle books), and been asked for a citation for that.
Do you have one?

I'll take that as a no.

The ePub format is more or less the industry standard for ebook formats and almost every other online ebook store aside from Amazon sells their books in that format. With Amazon embracing ePub technology it further substantiates that ePub is by far the most popular format to read ebooks.

a) A blog is not a reliable cite.
b) Especially not a blog post with the title "Amazon to Allow ePub eBooks on the Kindle e-Reader", which was of course incorrect
c) The blog post does not support what you claimed, that more people read ePub than Kindle.
You've been asked to support this claim before, and failed to do so.
