lunohod said exactly - "every seasoned software developer could do that". And I want that all people understand it - PB is lying to them when says that it is difficult and that it takes months or years, and PB is lying to them when says that "it is a bad ePub file" when people can't see normal formatting or even some text is lost. That all is a fault of PB developers. That all is a LOT of bugs in their firmware that PB sells without testing. And that is fault of concept of render in FBReader - it's concept is faulty, it makes no sense to try to fix it with additional code around this faulty concept - it is easier to make it "from zero" to support tables and normal formatting. Or just get an exсellent CoolReader with its academic concept of render - normal DOM model.
I'm sure that lunohod can do that porting too. But on russian forum, in response to his offer of help to PB, he got the same insults as me. I do not think that he or some else developer will do this work when the PB staff behaves such a way with "seasoned software developers".
