I am working on a new ebook reader for the Newton, to be called
"MobiNewt." It will support MobiPocket .PRC files (hence the name) and
possibly other formats. Depending on the amount of memory the format
parsing takes up it may also support the following formats:

    * fb2 e-book format <http://www.fictionbook.org>
    * HTML format
    * CHM format
    * plucker <http://www.plkr.org> format
    * Palmdoc (aportis doc).
    * zTxt (Weasel <http://gutenpalm.sourceforge.net> format).
    * TCR (psion text) format.
    * RTF format
    * OEB format
    * OpenReader <http://www.openreader.org> format
    * Plain text format

This is my first Newton project so I am having to learn as I go and I
expect this to run on any NOS 2.x system. If all of the above formats do
get implemented then most ebook formats readily available would be
supported, expanding the library of ebooks for the Newton beyond the
NewtonPress format
