Gemstar: Gemstar eBook Formatting Standards. IMP. v1.0 20 September 2007

This is a conversion of the old Gemstar eBook Formatting Standards 17 page pdf file. It is a must read for anyone doing their own books. I have also added an Appendix on the End that documents the differences between this standard and the way the latest versions of ebook Publisher and the eb1150 actually work.

I have posted it, but you don't really need it. The ebook publisher and book designer applications both include a pc based viewer for the books in imp file format. This reader can be used to view any imp file even if it was not created in publisher or designer. There two viewers are slightly different but both do a good job of showing exactly what the results will look like. You do need to check a book both in normal and zoom modes to ensure that it looks ok.

Note that the pdf I posted does not contain my additions for the difference between the original gemstar and the eb1150 we have today. The default font on the current device is small as defined in ebook publisher. This may be called medium in some conversion programs so compare it to a book done in ebook publisher like the ones I post to make sure. Formerly the default font was x-small but I think most people prefer the newer larger standard default. The zoom mode is 2 fonts larger.

It isn't. The characters that the 1150 can handle are specified in the Gemstar Formatting Guide (imp or pdf), and characters like g-circumflex and u-breve aren't in that set. The only way to get Esperanto text onto an eBookwise is to do so in image-mode imp format, either by using BookDesigner and making an 1150-sized book image, or by using something like PDFRead to rasterize a pdf. I've actually done the former before, but it's so long since I've played with BookDesigner (if you don't need special characters, other tools are much better for making imp books) that the quick sample I made and screen-grabbed isn't much. Upside of image-imp: any font, any size, any characters, landscape mode. Downside is file size, ranging from a few times that of text-imp up. At the font size I used to use, about twenty times text-imp size.

All files on the EB-1150 must be in IMP format when they are transferred to the device, or to a card to be used on the device. (The only alternative is a folder containing the eBook in internal format but this is not an exchange format)

PDF and any other standard eBook format must be converted to IMP before transferring. There are a number of tools you can use to do the conversion. See the wiki on IMP for more details.
