XPS Format?

Just ran across a format XPS that I'd not seen before -- the particular book came from Microsoft. XPS is apparently an "open source" xml based format?

why do we need it when we have epub (html)?

Because Microsoft wanted a way to export something from their Office applications which would preserve the pagination, formatting and font styling as a .pdf does w/o being a .pdf.

Neither ePub nor html would serve for this.

There're a number of utilities and tools for handling them, including a free viewer for Windows.
