ePeriodicals: Microsoft's Killer App for Tablet PC? "ePeriodicals technology will allow developers to create complex documents, like eMagazines, that can be read on a variety of devices, including the Tablet PC. The technology will manage the full publishing process—from the layout and creation of the documents; to their full editing life cycle; to their delivery via a push-type online subscription mechanism, say sources familiar with the plans. ... ePeriodicals is built around a new rendering engine that will make use of the next-generation ClearType technology that is built into the Tablet, as well as of the souped-up eBook Reader that is integrated into the Tablet PC operating system. ePeriodicals also will provide a set of automated layout tools for template creation and automated file creation, sources added." via Tomalak
