About File Formats and E-Readers

FAMe is available in pdf, (x)html, and epub formats. Each format has advantages and disadvantages:

Pdf
is the best format for printing. The pdf layout is fixed. FAMe can control both fonts and the placement of material. Pdf is not bad online, either, with very high-quality font rasterization on all platforms. However, it cannot re-flow the text according to the reader's font-size preference and viewing device. If you want to view a pdf page that is twice as wide, you need a canvas that is twice as wide.
Html
is the best format for on-line viewing on a high-speed-internet-connected computer. It is usually easy to change the browser font-size (using ctrl-minus or ctrl-plus) with a concomitant re-flow of the document. Unfortunately, the most common tablet web browsers (like Safari on iOS, Chrome on Android, and Internet Explorer on Windows-8) make font-size changes difficult. Pinching html text in tablets usually zooms into the document (just as it does in a pdf file), instead of re-flowing the text.
Epub
is the best format for tablets. Like pdf and unlike html, it works well for viewing on non-Internet connected devices, too. (Epub is basically pre-packaged html without javascript.) Unfortunately, many e-book readers are still “immature” (buggy). FAMe has been tested to work well on Apple iBooks, Firefox's epubreader, and Adobe's Digital Editions. Calibre and the Android Universal Book Reader mostly work, but have several reader bugs. (Kindle would have worked, except that Amazon makes it intentionally difficult to transfer content that was not obtained through the Amazon store.) Note that external links cannot be made to work reliably inside an ebook reader—epub is a self-contained package format. Some e-book readers will open a web browser; others will not.
Source
contains the LATEX-dialect source from which all of the above have been created. This is of interest only to connoisseurs of typesetting systems.
