It was aggravating to find an important piece of information missing: how to make your own .LIT ebook. Now that's been solved.
alternate .lit file readers?
Are there any alternate programs for reading .lit text files? Which are they? --h_a 22:28, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
- I would also like to see some alternative programs listed. --Krbrowning 00:50, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
- I don't think that there are any — .LIT files include DRM, which makes this pretty much impossible. I know that there used to be a program to break the DRM — it turned the .LIT file into a directory of HTML documents. That's the only other program that reads the format that I'm aware of. —Tom W.M. 03:40, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
- Some alternate readers/projects on this subject are these: ConvertLITdotcom and ABC Amber LIT Converter. --h_a 20:33, 21 December 2006 (UTC)
- Try Tiny eBook Reader --126.96.36.199 09:42, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
The LIT format was not based on MS HTML help.
MS Reader add-in is not compatible with Word 2007
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this? Has Microsoft abandoned Reader? It seems strange that a company like Microsoft would come out with a new version of Word (2007) with this incompatibility issue. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:10, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
ebook device project
It would be nice to have something about the history of Microsoft's cancelled ebook device from the late 1990s. A pad device had been designed as part of the reader project, but was cancelled. Their failure to follow through with that project is interesting in the context of modern iPad and android devices. DonPMitchell (talk) 18:15, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
