PQA (Palm Query Application) is a Palm OS Database (PDB) format used specifically for storing Web content via web clipping applications. The HTML portions are stored in Compressed Markup Language, a compact binary form of HTML content where the code is converted to a sequence of bytes of a tokenized format.

In PQA data, the CML code is then combined with other Web content such as images. The bytes of the binary representation are further compressed in a bitwise scheme where fewer than 8 bits are used to encode many common characters.

Identification
