What is a DNL Reader ?
Installation of the small file sized DNL Reader will allow
you to view Digital Web Books in the .DNL format. Digital Web
Books can be produced by using the DeskTop Author software.
DNL files are simply data files. Viewing the Digital Web
Books in the DNL format allows for a safe viewing experience,
it also reduces the file size of the final document hence even
less time is spent downloading your Digital Web Book.
The DNL Reader also allows for Digital Web Books to be
viewed inside a browser.
