html The hypertext markup language, commonly referred to as HTML is at the backbone of the internet and World Wide Web. It is the standard markup language used in the creation of webpages and was released in 1993 at the advent of the internet. The format defines the structure and layout of a webpage through markup tags such as header tags and image tags from which a browser can interpret multimedia information for on screen presentation. To view files and webpages saved with the .html filename extension, one needs a compatible web browser that implements the HTML specification. Because the format is open source, several browsers which are mostly free to use can open such files. The World Wide Web consortium actively maintains and updates the html specification.
fb2 The .fb2 filename extension refers to the open XML based eBook format known as FictionBook. The file format was developed by Dmitry Gribov with an initial release in 2004, quickly gaining popularity in Russia. The format is open which in this context means it has no compatibility with digital rights management technologies. The structure of the format splits the contents of the data into three sections; title information, XML document information, and finally information about the paper edition which is optional.
