Why did MS decide to go to the trouble to define .lit in the first place?
I suppose it's money, as always, but that makes the format proprietary and 
therefore if accepted will drive out of business all the DAISY reader 
Now maybe that's what Microsoft wants, but I think again that people should 
have a choice.
Just my thoughts.
Does .lit provide anything that DAISY doesn't? and aside from braille 
support, does it have deficiencies compared to DAISY?
Take care.
