try tapping a numeric superscript link on a Sony reader - without reaching for the stylus thingie - & you'll soon see why!
it's just about impossible to activate the link & not the dictionary definition of the nearby word.
making the link numbers larger would be unsightly.
I doubt the problem is unique to sony. The average human fingertip is a severe mismatch with the optimum sized footnote link superscript
I've even tried replacing all the superscript classes with normal sized numbers & they are still a pain to tap.
NB also that many current touch screen readers don't have a stylus holder / don't bother to supply a stylus.
