Format notes

Order of documents

To enforcing order of contents, we use the navigation document rather than the Open Packaging Format (OPF), which supports a spine element that aids in epub reader in navigation order. The Connexions library does not use the spine for order. A navigation document is the authority on order of contents and which contents are document like. Anything not included in the navigation document is considered a resource.

Document encapsulation

Collections are easy because they will be sent across as individual OPF entries that contain the collection tree as navigation documents. In the case of publishing module documents without a collection, the navigation document will be flagged as a non-document item.
