Compendium of digital formats

The federal government does some good work at time, despite the best efforts of our politicians! The Library of Congress has a wealth of information available over the web. In particular, the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) has a catalog of various digital formats, categorized or alphabetical. It discusses AVI, for instance, its various subtypes (e.g. AVI_Cinepak and AVI_MJPEG) as well as what it may contain (e.g. WAVE and MP3_CPR).

Excellent resource for newbies like me!
