</table> Open eBook (or OEB), or formally, the Open eBook Publication Structure (OEBPS), is a legacy e-book format "based primarily on technology developed by SoftBook Press"[2] and on XML; it has been superseded by the EPUB electronic publication standard.

Open eBook is a ZIP file plus a Manifest file. Inside the package a defined subset of XHTML may be used, along with CSS and Dublin Core metadata. The default file extension is .opf (OEB Package Format).
