Default Please explain F1, F2, F3...

I encountered F1 for the first time on my pepper forum, but really don't understand a few points:

1. If I plant F1 seeds, will the seeds from the resultant pods be viable, or do I have to buy more seed?

2. Is an F1 plant hardier than the non F1, in general?

3. Can two different F1's hybridise?

Cheers!
