By the way, thanks to the Calibre's people.

I have one question though. Among other things, the little booklet which enumerates the use cares states that the ereader should not be left too long in standby, because the screen could be "burned". I think this is a strange statement for eink screens. Is Kobo simply hiding itself behind a loose warning here?
That is a strange statement. And how long is "too long"? I'll ask Customer Service for an answer. Good test for my review, as well. ;-)

Again, thanks for clarifying. I think I fully understand now. So I think I was asked to test functionality of a "kepub" vs the same book as an epub bought from the Kobo site and then sideloaded (in Calibre, I'm assuming). And I certainly haven't done that. :-)
