Kudos to Google for standing behind open document standards for Office-style apps.
So, guys, when will you join the IDPF and do the .epub format for e-books and maybe even use your influence to encourage the group to come up with DRM alternatives such as social DRM?
The good ladies at Dear Author will love you. So will the cat, which, like the rest of us, is sick of eBabel—all those clashing e-book formats.
I hope Google will take a look at the open-source FBReader, destined for mobile phones using the Android platform. FBReader, though hardly a be-all and end-all, is just a hint of what will be possible with open source software and meaningful e-book standards.
