Firmware Update Supporting EPub Justification?

Has anyone heard from Sony about when they are going to get around to implementing a fix re:right justification in ePub texts on the Sony Readers? It seems as though they've had enough time to come up with something (Adobe DE does it tolerably), and I don't think sales on their new readers would be negatively affected by doing this.

If Sony did the fix, I would be all done with lrf files and would adopt the ePub format universally.

The PRS-900 will have justified ePub.

Thanks for the link! I think it really sucks that Sony hasn't gotten around to implementing the justification; after all, they are supposedly switching over to epub from lrf, aren't they? As it stands now, lrf looks so much better than epub on the Sonys that is seems to be almost a "step backwards" to go with the epub.

I don't want it in any case, unless it's implemented properly. I've yet to see any reader that handles full justification in a way that it is smoothly implemented for ease of reading.

Because if you look at this photo of the same book on the 300, 600, and 900, you'll see that the 900 is justified.

Hmmm. Interesting - thanks! That's always assuming it's a real picture, of course.

Yes, it is real.. Just look here and you'll see the same picture (just smaller).
