I am wondering if this is how Amazon does it also with the Kindle, as it results in a significant contrast improvement.
I confirm this seems to be what they have done. Thanks for the tip. I find this bold / heavy font kinda ugly, but oh so clear. Normal Caecilia just doesn't cut it after the bold / heavy. And the nasty Dutch Roman that comes with the 650? Yikes! What were Sony thinking? They add a pearl screen and install one crap font. Duh.
