Nate the greatest (2261802) writes "It looks like Amazon won't be adopting Epub after all. Today Amazon released some some technical details on the new Kindle ebook format, which they are calling Kindle 8. There are a lot of interesting changes to the file, including new formatting and SVG images. The new tags are going to open up a whole lot of new possibilities for making Kindle ebooks."

Kindleis? (1)

Whose job is it to check for errors like this? Only the poster, or is there a layer of verification before it's posted to the main page?

This is only a submission. If a submission gets selected for promotion to the front page, one of the editors will clean up typos.

Thanks for the clarification.

This is showing up on the front page for me, but that's probably because of my user preferences.

What Soulskill said :)

Updated date reference, removed a doubled word, added the needed space you noticed in the headline, folded in the "original source" link ... I'm exhausted!

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
