Converting from OPML
The Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML) is an XML format for outlines, that is mostly used to exchange lists of web feeds between web feed aggregrators. It uses the RFC 822 date format, which is considered obsolete. Fans of the RFC 822 date think it’s a good idea to have only two digits to represent a year. But I have no idea if they were born 1900 or 2000 or if they’ve ever heard of the much cooler RFC 3339. Or how they would call it: RF 39. Anyway. You’re here because you want to use this format. Or you have to. My condolences.
The files end with
.xml by default.
Converting to FictionBook2 e-book
FictionBook is an open (nice!) XML-based e-book format, that’s pretty popular in Russia. The format doesn’t specify the appearance of the document, it describes it’s structure. There are special tags for epigraphs, verses, quotations and a few more. It also contains the ebook metadata (author name, title, publisher) and is great for automatic processing and indexing. And the best thing: It’s DRM-free. In contrast to ePub it’s a single XML file, even images are embedded (as Base64). That’s how e-books should work I guess. If you’re wondering how e-books should not work, read a little bit about how ePub works.The files end with
.fb2by default. More about FictionBook2 e-book files
