You've seen them all over the Internet and even downloaded a few, but how exactly are ebooks created? There are basically two types of ebooks -- HTML compiled and text compiled. However, for the purpose of this tutorial, we'll focus on HTML compiled ebooks. An HTML compiled ebook is created using HTML -- the same language used to create a web page. That's really all an HTML compiled ebook is -- a group of web pages all compressed into one file. This file has a EXE extension and requires no installation. In order to read HTML compiled ebooks, you must have Internet Explorer 4.0+ installed on your computer. It doesn't have to be your main browser, just installed. It is freely available on the Internet. HTML compiled ebooks are better suited for smaller projects such as how-to, instructional or informational ebooks. HTML compiled ebooks are self-contained 'executable' files of HTML. This HTML may be a website you've created or HTML you've specifically prepared to be compiled into a downloadable .exe file for distribution. This .exe file is a completely free standing program and requires no installation. When clicked on, your ebook instantly opens on your clients desktop.
The possibilities are endless. Take your time and research your target market prior to writing your ebook.
