Information about PDB and FB2 file formats

Name PDB FB2

Developed by Palm, Inc. Dmitry Gribov
Type of format eBook File e-book file format
Description The .pdb file extension is a database format used for the Palm OS platform. The PalmDOC eBook file type is a version of the PDB format. The proliferation of eBooks has left this format behind due to the lack of support for DRM protection meaning only royalty free text is typically available. FictionBook is an open XML-based e-book format which originated and gained popularity in Russia. FictionBook files have the .fb2 filename extension. The FictionBook format does not specify the appearance of a document; instead, it describes its structure. For example, there are special tags for epigraphs, verses and quotations.
Technical details The format supports reflowable content however the format lacks some of the features found in more modern eBook formats, for example only providing a very basic contents table. The format features RLE compression which was crucial because the format was designed for the low storage capacity Palm devices of the 1990s. In contrast to other eBook formats (e.g. ePub), a FictionBook document consists of a single XML file. Images are converted to Base64 and reside inside the <binary> tag, so the size of the embedded images is increased by approximately 37%. FictionBook files are often distributed inside Zip archives.
