The small number on the right hand side of the screen is not distracting, although completely unnecessary. As for justification, I much prefer the full justification in the LRF format, even with big gaps between words. If I only had Epub as an output format, it would be fine; but for now, I'm sticking with LRF.
I really like that Amazon uses "locations" to mark places in a book so any location is always the same no matter the font size. I think Sony should implement a similar idea. "Page numbers" make no sense with ebooks.
So has it been reported yet when Sony will make the change to ePub? I may start buying my books from the Sony store if the price of a book is the same or lower than on Amazon.
