LIT eBook Format LIT Converter
Microsoft developed the LIT format for its now discontinued Microsoft Reader program. Microsoft Reader typically came as a free application for Windows computers and Pocket PC PDAs. Both Microsoft Reader and the LIT format were released in 2000, but Microsoft retired the program in 2011. LIT files are similar in structure to CHM files but can include digital rights management (DRM) protection to prevent copyright theft.
Microsoft Reader and LIT files used ClearType, which improved readability on devices. The main disadvantage with the LIT format was that it was not compatible with many devices or ereading apps. Ereading devices like the Kindle and smartphone/tablet apps are also much more convenient for reading books on the go. If you have an old LIT file, you should still be able to open it using Calibre’s ebook software. Otherwise, you may want to convert the file into another ebook format.
EPUB eBook Format EPUB Converter
EPUB is the standard open-source format for ebooks. EPUB is short for ‘electronic publication’. The format was developed in the mid-late 2000s by the International Digital Publishing Forum and is an alternative to formats like AZW, developed for the Kindle. EPUB files can be viewed on a wide range of e-readers and digital reading apps, including NOOK, Apple Books, Okular and Calibre. Amazon announced in 2022 that new Kindle models would also support EPUB files.
The EPUB standard is now maintained by a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) working group. The EPUB format comprises three open standards – one defining content markup, one describing the ebook structure, and one packaging all the files into a compressed format. EPUB files normally include an index page for navigation, and accessibility features to adjust text size or allow for text-to-speech. EPUB also has the potential to include interactivity, accessible image, video, or audio elements.
