The LIT files belong to the ancient Microsoft Reader which was used to read e-books. The e-books which are displayed by Microsoft Reader have the extension .lit which is shortened of Literature. The LIT file format consists of a Microsoft ITOL/ITLS HTML Help 2.0 file, which gives all sorts of amazing features like LZX compression, binary representation of markup material, and arbitrary optional auxiliary data associated with each stream. Book text is an arbitrary number of OEBPS 1.0 markup streams and a subset of OEBPS 1.0 CSS. Images are GIF, JPEG, and PNG.
