Yes. If I remember correctly, on the PRS505/300/600/x50 the Sony default css is stored in the non-visible location
PRSPlus uses a firmware hack (originally by pepak, I think) to change the location to user-visible
I'm a little confused by this because at one time it was considered important that the 2 path lengths be EXACTLY the same so as not to mess up the firmware. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will correct me if I'm wrong.
Edit: I just found this quote from kartu in an old thread
I've changed path filename, hope you don't mind. In prs+ it looks like:
/database/system/PRSPlus/epub/style.css ("///opt/prps/epub/style.css" in so file, /opt/prsp is a symlink)
would satisfy the identical path length requirement.
I hope you can do something with this info. I'm sending you Pommie good vibes to make my PRST1 even better
