Open eBook

An XML-based standard for electronic books and Web publishing from the International Digital Publishing Forum (www.idpf.org). Introduced in 1999 and officially known as the "Open eBook Publication Structure Specification" (OEBPS), Open eBook publications are not read directly by an e-book device. They are compiled into the e-book's proprietary format in order to optimize the content for the particular hardware. The Open eBook format, last updated in 2002, was the precursor to the Open Publication Structure (OPS) of 2007. See EPUB, OpenReader and e-book.

OeBF's Publication Structure Working Group is now developing version 2.0 of OeBPS. Goals for this version include major enhancements in navigation and linking, internationalization, and metadata.
Version 1.0.1 of OEBPS, which is based on more than a year of industry experience with 1.0, doesn't add additional features to the specification but removes ambiguities and corrects errors.
The OeBF Publication Structure Working Group encourages all participants and interested parties to download copies of the OEBPS 1.0.1 specification from the Open eBook Forum Web site (http://www.openebook.org).
