See how much more text is available on the left image, when compared to the standard ADE format? I think it is more readable too!

There is NO standard ADE format. The format you get from ePub via ADE is how the CSS specifies it to be. I change my ePub to specify no margins and if the publishes changes the base font size, I change it so it's left at the default. Also, any extraneous paragraph spaces are removed. And lastly, I set paragraph indents to be 1.1em.

Given the two screens, I prefer the one on the left based on the better formatting. It has nothing to do with the justification settings. However, the header for the Act I is better on the right.
