I’m confused! Okay, so this happens quite regular, but on this occasion I think I might have good reason.
I’ve been following this new IDPF format for some time now and I certainly have great belief in it, but it seems to me that no one knows how the word should be written. Here’s a short list of what I’ve seen so far;
- ePub (my current preferred way)
I haven’t made up my mind completely but my two favourites are ePub and EPUB. David at TeleRead has often mentioned the need for an ePub logo and I whole-heartedly agree. Let’s get the ‘look’ in peoples minds and what better way than a logo.
But is it really so important? When I think on how people talk about “mp3” I don’t have any fixed ideas in mind (nor a logo for that matter) and mp3 is huge!
Well, until someone says otherwise, I think I’ll stick with ePub.
I you have have your own thoughts on this, please do leave a comment.
UPDATE: The IDPF officially chose “EPUB” as the correct way to write about the standard.
