How many Open-Source Ebook formats are there and where are the specifications?

Personally I can't run any Windows/Mac/Linux applicatons under
ordinary circumstances anyway which makes however well they are coded
somewhat moot.

But that doesn't stop me from stripping out text from what I do have
(and I have a decent library I think) for viewing in a basic text


P.S.: I actually run AmigaOS on a PowerPC machine, yeah,  niche within
a niche setup.
 (see ACube Systems SRL homepage for a sam440flex motherboard to see specs)
