What is EPUB File Format?
An EPUB file, also known as an Open eBook File, is a standardized format developed by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). It is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and XHTML (eXtensible Hypertext Markup Language). EPUB files are designed for reading digital books and publications on various electronic devices such as e-readers, tablets, and smartphones.
EPUB files consist of three main components. The first component is the spine, which contains the main text of the book and defines the order in which the pages should be read. It provides the structural framework for the content.
The second component is the manifest, which serves as a catalog of all the files that make up the EPUB book. This includes the spine, cover image, table of contents, and any additional content. The manifest ensures that all the necessary files are properly linked and organized within the EPUB package.
The third component is the container, which stores the EPUB files in a compressed format. The container helps reduce file size and enables efficient distribution and storage of EPUB books.
EPUB files can be created using various software programs such as Adobe InDesign, Sigil, and Calibre. These tools provide authors and publishers with the ability to create, edit, and format EPUB books according to the specifications set by the IDPF. With EPUB being an open and widely adopted standard, readers can enjoy a seamless reading experience across different devices and platforms.
What is FODS File Format?

Furthermore, FODS files extend the OpenDocument standard by incorporating additional features. These include support for merged cells, allowing the merging of adjacent cells into a single larger cell, as well as frozen rows and columns, enabling the locking of specific rows or columns for easy navigation while scrolling through the spreadsheet.
FODS files offer compatibility and interoperability across spreadsheet applications that support the OpenDocument standard. They provide a flexible and structured format for storing spreadsheet data, ensuring data integrity and facilitating seamless sharing and collaboration.
