robertogreco : zhook   1

Zhook is a simple ebook format. -
"Perhaps you want to craft beautiful ebooks. The open industry-standard format, EPUB, is pretty good and very comprehensive, but it’s not really intended for making books by hand.

*Zhook keeps it simple. Just create a webpage (yes, probably a very long webpage) and zip it up.

*Zhook is really easy to test. You can do most of your testing in Firefox and Safari or Chrome. If you zip and upload it here, you can do further testing and tweaking quite quickly with tools.

*Zhook has higher-fidelity semantics. This is because Zhook uses HTML5, which has more useful semantic elements (like grouping headings together with hgroup, or captioning an image with figure). We have good uses for all that semantic richness, as you’ll see.

And perhaps most importantly: * Zhook makes a best-of-breed EPUB."
