Highlight and dictionary: any book or Kobo books?

Hi,

Tomorrow I'll probably buy a Kobo Glo. One quick question, here:
http://www.the-ebook-reader.com/nook...obo-touch.html

They say that "Has highlights and dictionary, but only for Kobo ebooks.". I'm sure that I've read that if I use the last firmware I could use the dictionary for any book, right?
What about the highglights? Any epub or only the Kobo ones?

Thanks!

So far I have read 5 sideloaded books and in all of them I could use both the dictionaries and the anotations, haven't tryed the highlights but I supose they work since the anotations work fine

Highlight, dictionary and annotations work for me on sideloaded epub books. I seldom use a KEPUB book so not sure if there are many differences for the two formats in the handling of those features .

As the others have said, highlights, dictionary and annotations work for epub books. But, that wasn't the case for the first couple of firmware versions. There isn't a date on the review, but looking at the video in the review, that might be the original firmware version release on the Touch.
