Downloading Reader eBooks

There is a problem with using Netscape to download Reader eBooks.  Netscape defaults to downloading the Reader eBooks as text instead of binary files.  This corrupts the books and makes them unusable on the desktop or Pocket PC.  Internet Explorer users are able to download the Reader eBooks without a problem.  In the short run, you may want to use Internet Explorer to download Reader eBooks to avoid the problem. 

For websites that offer Reader eBook downloads, you need to add mime binary support for .LIT files.  An example of how to do this for Apache web servers is to use "add AddType reader/x-lit .lit" in the .htaccess file in your root directory.
