There is another type of EPUB that doesn't quite fit the typical description: the fixed-layout EPUB. So, what is so special about this form of EPUB? Primarily, its content is not re- flowable, but yet the text is still accessible to the reader. This allows them to search, copy, and bookmark that text. The author has greater control over the layout of content, including full-page and two-page spread imagery. At first glance, the fixed-layout EPUB can be easily mistaken for a PDF document, because the display is very similar.
Authors can use typical Desktop Publishing features like text wrap and object positioning with the confidence that it will be respected in a fixed-layout EPUB. This is great for documents were the layout is just as important as the content is to its effectiveness. Designers love the idea that their vision is maintained, no matter what device is used by the reader. And readers love the look and feel of the advanced layouts. Fixed-layout EPUBs can be much more than just a linear stream of words and images.
You can regain control over the display of your content with fixed-layout EPUBs. So don't go judging an eBook by its file extension. You may be surprised at what's waiting for you behind the cover. If the layout of your content is critical to your message, then perhaps a fixed-layout EPUB is right for you.
