PDB/PRC support in i62/M92

As I'm a former PalmOS user I was intrigued about Onyx Boox support of old PDB/PRC files with different formats in my i62HD (I'm sure the same would happen in M92, M90 and I suppose even in A60)
So I checked different PDB/PRC of different data types and the results are:

*SUPPORTED:
--Mobipocket
--PalmDoc/Aportis
--Plucker
--zTxT


*NOT SUPPORTED:
--Isilo3
--Ereader
--Wordsmith

*NO IDEA (because I don't have):
--Isilo (pre Isilo 3.x)
--TealDoc (as is a modiffied PalmDoc with HTML-like tags perhaps docs works but without format tags and tags can be seen?)

Which program is used to view the PDB files I talk about in previous post? Coolreader it FBReader? Can be configured by the user which program to use?
(Edit: I suppose it isn't Coolreader as I don't see its advanced options. It should be Fbreader )

Is there any other former PalmOs user here that still has old PDB files? In that case what is your experience and problems?

In general ... people recommend using calibre (with "epub" as the "output format").

Thanks. I'm sorry some PDB formats are not supported by Calibre (iSilo is one of them )
