Did Kindle ebooks or digitalization techniques improve?

I bought a couple of Oracle books this weekend, Amazon store, and to my surprise, they look better on my Kindle 3 now. I was charging my iPad so decided to use the Kindle 3 instead, which I am using for pure text books or novels, mostly. I found that some programming code is no longer regular text but an image, which gives more control when resizing and does not break the lines and paragraph. This does not happen in other Amazon books I have.

Can someone else validate my comment? Or it was just this specific book that was digitalized that way?

I wonder if this is also happening on poetry books as well...

I can't comment on technical books, but I have noticed that I'm receiving more properly formatted books lately. It seems as though some publishers are starting to realize that dumping in text and shooting out an ebook isn't enough to get good results.

Actually, I just remembered that a couple months ago I downloaded a sample of a Win 7 book and the formatting was excellent - none of the strange paragraph-blank page-image-blank page thing I've seen in the past. I no longer have the sample, though, and I get so many freebies it would take me forever to go through my Kindle page on Amazon to track down the name of the publisher.

Right ...

I thought it was my imagination, but recently published books look way much better on Kindle 3 now.
