Bookdesigner: Which fontsizes, margins,settings when converting to LRF?

Hi,
I'm new to book designer,and I'm trying out my first conversion.
Which fontsize/word spacing/margins do you prefer?

I found from letters I could perfectly read 8pt on my Sony Reader, however the text becomes too heavy, and you're really looking at a black screen decreasing the fontsize as small as that I found.

The standard wordspacing is fine for me.

I found no problems using no margin on top/bottom, and use 5pt margin left and right instead.
The reason being that on top Book Designer has the book title typed, and on the bottom there's the small battery/page bar.
The standard 10pt borders for left/right I found too wide, and prefer 5pt.

Anyone has any other non-custom settings with the program?

I think perhaps it does not matter much to which format you save, since I suspect with the same settings a mobi format will look the same as a lrf format (the text) in their 800x600 screen devices...?

Also,do you change anything on the picture when inserting a front cover?

*Edit: I've also changed the colors to a 5color gray mode (Black, dark grey,grey,light grey, white),or do you think it's better to leave all text in plain black?*
