This sample by Ivan Herman of the W3C, Portable Web Publications, just about hits the limit of 5DOC’s prototyping site with the HTML download weighing in at +20mb. Note: there is an embedded video on page 27.

At the moment, on the eve of the W3C 2016 TPAC Conference, there is still considerable debate about what is meant by PWP and even suggestions that the name should be changed again (it used to be EPUB+WEB).

There is some consensus that there should be a separate effort to more precisely define offline capabilities and requirements. Foreseeing that this would happen, has helped establish the W3C Offline-URL Community Group in order to update the 1994 File URL scheme(file:///) and add zip compression and containers.

Sample – Open Access Academic Article


Check out the first of a series of 5DOC samples featuring Open Access academic articles.

How to Write Using Rich Text Format and Markdown in LaTeX and Overleaf

This first OA sample already demonstrates the amazing potential of offline HTML to immediately replace the status quo use of PDF for scholarly content and foreclose future use of problematic EPUB. It looks much better plus it is easy to produce if the original is already in HTML.

With the use of CSS and Javascript, attractive visual presentation and in-demand functionality will add tremendous value to offline content.


NOTE: This is a REPRODUCTION of an article from Winnower, an open access online scholarly publishing platform. This sample on is NOT updated for new reviews, views or any other content that is dynamically generated on the web page of the original article.

Reveal.js is “a framework for easily creating beautiful presentations using HTML.” The online sample was built with the open source Presenter plugin and can be downloaded and read offline.

With this sample, 5DOC has demonstrated that WordPress can easily be used to provide features similar to the premium service offered by which is operated by the Reveal.js developer.


Introduction: Time to Move Forward

5DOC.ORG believes now is the time to move forward towards a browser-based offline document – a 5DOC.

5DOC.ORG is an initiative to build an alternative to PDFs and eBooks.
and it is an ongoing effort where building complexity ultimately leads to simplification. A 5DOC is built with WordPress, a highly successful open source content management system.

5DOC.ORG believes the complex effort by W3C-IDPF (see slide below) for the next generation EPUB+WEB should be modified to much simpler requirements and that the effort should begin ASAP.
