|Selecting a Book Reader|
There are four readers you can use to read books: the Standard Reader, the ClearText Reader, the Comic Reader, and the Spiral Reader. The Standard Reader and the ClearText Reader can be used with any browser. The other readers require that you install a plugin on your web browser. Below is a matrix that describes the benefits and requirements of each of the readers.
Java Webstart Plugin - For Comic and Spiral Readers
Java Webstart is a plugin that you can install that allows you to view books in the Comic and Spiral readers. Macintosh OSX users should already have this plugin installed. To install the plugin for Windows and UNIX operating systems, download it for free from the Java website. Follow the instructions for your operating system.
