harry8199, I would suggest stoping all these questions about ePub3 as you won't be getting any answers. Nobody is doing anything with ePub3 until there are programs out there to deal with ePub3. Until that happens, ePub3 is not happening.

Here's a start

Because EPUB 3 is just a bunch of text files packaged into one file using zip, all text editor programs can be used to edit ePub 3. There are dozens of good text editors out there, including many which are smart about XHTML, CSS, and so on: Emacs, TextMate, Coda, Espresso, Notepad++, etc.

The complete EPUB 3.0 spec is available for all to read online at the IDPF website.

A Foreign Resource is defined here: http://idpf.org/epub/30/spec/epub30-...source-foreign

Foreign Resource = "A Publication Resource that is not a Core Media Type, ..."

The Core Media Types are listed in a table (link).

You'll notice that video files are not listed, so they're Foreign Resources.

Therefore an example of using a Foreign Resource would be embedding a video of a cow walking up a hill in the sunshine.

Sure, you can make an ePub 3 eBooks, but there is almost no way to display it. So why bother to make an ePub 3 eBook that's got almost no way to be read?

Until we get software that handles ePub 3 and we get our ePub 2 devices updated, forget ePub 3. Unless ADE does ePub 3 and we get readers and reading apps updated, it won't fly.
