Since an electronic book (eBook) has various advantages over a paper-based book, there is a growing interest in eBooks. EBook industries are using different document formats creating difficulties in the interoperability and interchangeability of eBooks. The U.S. and Japan have realized the importance of a standard format for eBooks and developed such standards. Recently, Korea has also developed a standard format based on XML. The primary goal of this standard is to support the interchangeability of eBooks, reflect the characteristics of the Korean publication environment, simplify the creation process, and promote compatibility with other standards. It includes an extension mechanism for various document classes, and supports advanced style control such as vertical writing and multi-column based on XSL.
