also, the rss feeds (including from a news site) made with calibre use hyperlinks for navigation and they work very well too.
oh, and we call them "liseuses".
Thanks, that is great to know about the hyperlinks. It will make reading non-fiction items so much easier.
I had seen you use the word "liseuses" but I am fuzzy on how to pronounce it. Also is the basis French or is it just made up? [By the by, in my school days, aeons ago, my French class teacher said that the French language was strictly controlled to elivate new, "slang" words, as we do it here in America. Is this still true?]
