Ebook projects like Project Gutenberg transcribe ebooks and make them available for the widest number of reading devices. Standard Ebooks takes ebooks from sources like Project Gutenberg, formats and typesets them using a carefully designed and professional-grade style manual, fully proofreads and corrects them, and then builds them to create a new edition that takes advantage of state-of-the-art ereader and browser technology.
The Standard Ebooks project applies a rigorous and modern style manual when developing each and every ebook to ensure they meet a professional-grade and consistent typographical standard.
Standard Ebooks does a careful and complete readthrough of each ebook before releasing it, checking it against a scan of the original pages to fix as many typos as possible. Even if they do miss something, their ebooks are stored in the hugely popular Git source control system, allowing anyone to easily submit a correction.
Each ebook is also enhanced with careful standards-based semantic markup that opens the gateway for exciting new kinds of machine processing.
