Nook vs Epub

I purchased a multi-format ebook and inside the zip was one labeled title.epub and another labeled title.nook.epub. What is the difference? I have a Sony and will use the plain epub so this is question is out of pure curiosity.

nook epub is epub with Barnes and Nobles DRM if I was to take a guess.

I don't think that is it as the books are DRM free. By the way, the books are Hal Spacejock 1 and 2. If you buy book 2 you get book 1 for free. Not bad for 5 bucks.

Since that involves the credit card number you have registered with your B&N account, I'm doubtful.

I'd guess there is some special formatting, maybe for the cover. Most of the non B&N books I have do not display the cover correctly on my nook.

I don't see why there is a nook ePub when the nook uses ADE and should work fine with the same DRM free ePub as say Sony or ADE for Windows.

It's probably tweaked so the cover displays correctly on the Nook, like someone mentioned already.
