This specification, EPUB Canonical Fragment Identifier (epubcfi), defines a standardized method for

referencing arbitrary content within an EPUB® Publication through the use of fragment identifiers.

The Web has proven that the concept of hyperlinking is tremendously powerful, but EPUB Publications

have been denied much of the benefit that hyperlinking makes possible because of the lack of a

standardized scheme to link into them. Although proprietary schemes have been developed and

implemented for individual Reading Systems, without a commonly-understood syntax there has been no

way to achieve cross-platform interoperability. The functionality that can see significant benefit from

breaking down this barrier, however, is varied: from reading location maintenance to annotation

attachment to navigation, the ability to point into any Publication opens a whole new dimension not

previously available to developers and Authors.

This specification attempts to rectify this situation by defining an arbitrary structural reference that can

uniquely identify any location, or simple range of locations, in a Publication: the EPUB CFI. The following

considerations have strongly influenced the design and scope of this scheme:

· The mechanism used to reference content should be interoperable: references to a reading

position created by one Reading System should be usable by another.

· Document references to EPUB content should be enabled in the same way that existing

hyperlinks enable references throughout the Web.

· Each location in an EPUB file should be able to be identified without the need to modify the


· All fragment identifiers that reference the same logical location should be equal when compared.

· Comparison operations, including tests for sorting and comparison, should be able to be

performed without accessing the referenced files.

· Simple manipulations should be possible without access to the original files (e.g., given a

reference deep in a file, it should be possible to generate a reference to the start of the file).

· Identifier resolution should be reasonably efficient (e.g., processing of the first chapter is not

required to resolve a fragment identifier that points to the last chapter).

· References should be able to recover their target locations through parser variations and document


· Expression of simple, contiguous ranges should be supported.

· An extensible mechanism to accommodate future reference recovery heuristics should be
