The Mobipocket file format is a binary format for the distribution of eBooks. The Mobipocket format is based on HTML and is reflow-able. Mobipocket supports most features of standard HTML to format and layout text and images.
Publication file formats can be separated into two categories, reflow-able formats and fixed layout formats.
Fixed layout formats are typically designed for printing, they include PostScript and Adobe PDF. The content of fixed layout files is displayed the same way things will appear once printed. Images, words, paragraphs and columns are positioned at fixed coordinates within a page.
Reflow-able formats are typically designed to be displayed on screens for which the size is not known or imposed. HTML and plain text are reflow-able formats.
