What’s the Difference Between an eBook and HTML?

eBooks take advantage of ClearType technology to make the text on the screen much easier to read. Microsoft Reader—the software you need to read our eBooks—also includes handy features like a notepad, bookmarks, and a dictionary. It comes pre-installed on most Pocket PCs and can be downloaded free from Microsoft.

Use HTML files if you can’t, or don’t want to, use eBook files. HTML files can be read with any Web browser and many word-processing applications.
