Mobipocket specific URLs
Using these special URL's in the window.open() function or with the 'href'
attribute of the <a> tag, you can access special documents and
features within the Mobipocket Reader.
This is the most useful type of Mobipocket-specific URLs. It allows you to link to an ebook. You do not have to know the exact location of the book on the user's device. The only requirement is that it be listed in the library of the Mobipocket reader. The book can be in main memory, or on a removable card, as lons as the library can find it, oeb:redirect will work.
The syntax is:oeb:redirect?title=MyBook#anchor1
"title" is the database name of the ebook file. It is derived from the
title of the ebook by prcgen and displayed at the end of each build.
In URL requests, you might want to access data tables inside of other ebooks. You can do that using the $ operator in a URL identifying a book. The $ operator gives you acces to object embedded in ebooks. For a data table, the yntax is $table=MyTable.oeb:redirect?title=MyBook$table=MyTable
