is based on the XML format. Its main tasks are: precise display on a variety of devices, full preservation of document structure, ability to be transformed into other formats.

This format is used for storing bitmap images. It supports many different file types and compression algorithms. One Palm bitmap file can contain multiple versions of the same images with different colors. These files are used on PALM devices.
