is a format used in the MobiPocket Reader software on desktop and mobile platforms. Books in this format can have .prc and .mobi file extensions. MOBI was originally based on the PalmDOC format; adding HTML tags made it possible to create a high-compression version which compresses data to a high degree. There are a number of formatting restrictions – the text cannot be indented, and inserted tables and images cannot be formatted.
This bitmap image format was created for storing images taken in HDR mode, which provides a high dynamic contrast ratio. It may have either a 32- or 16-bit pixel structure. It is used for high-quality graphics with rich bitmap images, with or without lossy compression.
