Sounds reasonable. I'd definitely first introduce a basic feature like, say, paragraph spacing, into Bluefire Reader, before messing around with EPUB 3. I mean, the logical sequence is first to get the basics right, and only then move on to advanced stuff.

But, like Micah said, his focus is apparently on his corporate customers more than on regular-Joe e-book readers. (And that different focus is palpable when you load the same book in Bluefire Reader and Marvin.) Corporations, as we know, have never cared about quality much -- it's all about profits for them, and that there may be a correlation between product quality and profits... that somehow seems to elude them. If Apple or Amazon cared about product quality in any big way, they couldn't possibly release such utterly mediocre and lame e-reader apps like iBooks and Kindle into the public. But they're apparently very happy with how bad their software is. The profits are flowing in (for now), right, thanks to the unenlightened reading public, so why change anything?
