program. You can distribute them on any media you like, including

- like how to design HTML files that compile into a high quality
- Compatibility: E-Books created using Activ E-Book use the
exact same "engine" as Internet Explorer. This means total
compatiblility with the world's most popular web browser including
support for HTML, DHTML, images & animations, JPEG and PNG graphics,
- Internet Linking: Use standard HTML features to include links
to relevant web sites in your E-Book. When a user clicks on a link to a web
site, the program even opens Internet Explorer giving them a chance to connect
if they're not already connected.
...And yes, you can even link to your own web site to draw traffic!
- Password Protection:
- You can password protect your entire E-Book,
or just protect selected pages and allow your users to see a preview of part of the
book before they get their password.
- You can boost your ezine subscription rate
by requesting readers sign-up before you give them them password.
- You can customize the message shown when a user accesses a password protected
- You can even allocate up to 1,000 different passwords per E-Book
- each user will require a different one from this pool - to prevent password "sharing".
- You can even link directly to a form or page on your web site for that specific
user to get the password that'll work for him.
- Powerful Testing Features: Test out how your E-Book would look and work
with and without the correct password (assuming you have one) - switch between
the 2 modes at any time with a click of the mouse. Compile or Run your E-Book
in seconds for truly Rapid Application Development.
- Save your Projects: Unlike some other compilers you don't have
to re-input all your settings each time you want to create a new version of
an E-Book. Simply save all your settings - and continue later at any time
- HTML Protection: Right-mouse clicking is controlled by your
choice of setting in your E-Books. You can disable it completely or allow
access to a limited menu
(which does not include View Source).
This helps protect your HTML source and stop thieves from easily stealing your
valuable page designs.
- Branding: Every E-Book you create includes your name, your company name,
your copyright message, and even a link to your web site - and your e-mail address
or auto-responder address if you want it!
(various options in the compiler, may allow you to turn off visible display of
most of this info, or design your own page for it, if wanted).
- Unique Serial Numbers: Every E-Book includes a unique serial number (we call
this an "ESBN" - it's a similar idea to "ISBNs" used for off-line books).
This gives you yet another way to keep track of, and manage distribution.
- Viral Marketing: You can create and give away free E-Books,
and allow others to do the same.
As word about your E-Book spreads, more and more people may distribute
your E-Book, and each one becomes a Self-Replicating Traffic Generator.
- ...and of course tons more that I haven't even mentioned yet!
But wait, there's still more...

comes with over 700 icons for you to choose from - or you can create your
own unique icons in your favorite icon editor. (icon editor not included)
- Shareware-Style E-Books: Set your E-Books to expire after a
set number of days or uses, unless the password is entered. Giving your
users a free trial of all or part of your E-Book is an incredibly powerful
tool that can skyrocket your sales.
- User Interface Customization: Turn on or off the availability
of toolbars, status bars, colors, text labels on buttons, and more. Create
kiosk-style E-Books. Customize the colors of "system" pages. Choose
the starting screen position and size of your E-Books. You can even set your
E-Books to float on top of other windows (great for instructional guides).
- Splash Screens and Start-Up Messages: Add a splash screen
graphic to your E-Book and/or a pop-up message box.
- Built-in Search Engine: An extremely customizable search engine
is built-in to your E-Books. If you are creating references or How To manuals,
your readers will love this feature.
- Auto Installation Options: Your E-Book can prompt users when
first run, and add its icon automatically to the Start menu or
- Add-In Programs/Scripts: Kick-off external programs or files on
specified events such as when your E-Book is started or closed, or when
