Hi boradicus, and welcome to MobileRead.

RTF files sizes:
I'll have to disagree with you on the size of RTF files. They're huge. Harry and I (among others), routinely convert (read: lovingly assemble) LRF files for the Sony upload section.

Photos that enhance one's reading experience:
Additionally, the absence of photos is a downside to having RTF files on the Sony Reader. Check out Harry's work on Charles Dickens: In my opinion, these are commercial-grade assembled books, with beautiful illustrations and presented in a format that puts Sony's classics to shame.

When I make available novels from old pulps or old paperbacks, I often like to add old cover photos. I find they add to the reading and/or presentation of what's going to be read.

Links to chapter headings:
Having links - on the Reader and not on the computer - is a very utilitarian advantage over RTF. Frankly, Sony's support for RTF is rather poor.

No one's mad:
We're all passionate, and I think that's where most of us are coming from.

Welcome:
Let me again welcome you to this Forum and to MobileRead. Your comments are thoughtful and are appreciated.

Respectfully,
Don
