Using the file extension for the type of eBook has problems for files that are PalmOS based since Palm only has two extensions (PRC and PDB). Read the links to understand why. At this point PRC really is the same as Mobi 99% of the time so having two lines is redundant and confusing. PDB on the other hand is confusing as well for a different reason since it really doesn't tell you what you need to know. eBook stores need more research to determine which PDB they really support. Favorites include PML (eReader), TR (TomeRaider), DOC (PalmDOC) but there are others.

Almost every popular reader has books on their web sites and for some this is likely the only place they can be found. Perhaps a separate list for those is appropriate since they only have one format. Also I think Author sites should be listed separately as well since they only have a very few books (perhaps a different but identical table) --DaleDe 10:49, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
