Kindle Format 8

This could be good news. Amazon moves away from its old MOBI-based format to an HTML5+CSS3-featured format, KF8:

The announcement seems to indicate that ePub will be an acceptable input format from publishers, but this remains to be seen.

I was thinking, since a KF8 file will probably be a "container file" (like zip), they could have named it KFC. Maybe they were too chicken. :)
