high school textbooks in HTML or PDF format.  There should be no

Pearson Prentice Hall has a full series of iTexts that are available
online or on a CD-Rom.  You can find links to them here:
Preview a sample of the interactive online textbook...
The same trusted content as the printed textbook with interactive
activities, videos, audio, and self-assessments to engage all learners

As has been noted below, the ebook offerings for high school textbooks
are quite limited...I think you'll find the Prentice Hall offerings
not only to be of high quality, but quite possibly, the only
broad-based option available for online textbooks at the high school

Enjoy...!  Let me know if there's anything else that you need.

Just to let you know, most high school textbooks are not available in
pdf or even more copyprotected formats (Microsoft Reader). This is
starting somewhat with college/university texts, but not so much with
high school texts.
