What is an epub file and how do I open an epub file?

EPUB, or Open Publication Structure eBook, is an open eBook standard of the International Digital Publishing Forum. EPUB is designed for reflowable content which can be optimized by an EPUB reader. A reflowable document is an electronic document which can adapt its presentation to the output device. Similar pre-press or fixed page size output formats like PostScript or PDF are not reflowable during the actual printing process because the page is not resized.

For users, the internet standard, HTML is a reflowable format as is the case with any resizable electronic page format. EPUB also supports fixed-layout content used by publishers and conversion houses. It supersedes the Open eBook standard. This is the file extension that allows data and information contained in the e-book to be read and distributed by users. It comes in a compressed format and this is what makes e-books easily distributed by publishers. The .EPUB file extension is also known as an open e-book file because it refers to three IDPF standards. The standards are the Open Publication Structure, the Open Packaging Format and the Open Container Format. This is due to the fact that the content of the e-book is not the only thing that’s saved in .epub file format. The structure of the e-book and everything about the e-book are all in .EPUB format. The reason that users can read e-books and other digital publications is because of the .EPUB file extension. This file extension is also what makes it easy for other devices to access and read e-books; devices such as e-book readers, ipads, cell phones, and others.
