footnotes?

I've downloaded the same epub formatted book from gutenberg on both my Sony and my Ipod (using Stanza). On my ipod, the footnote numbers show up as blue links: if I click on them, it takes me to illustrations. On My 950, the footnote numbers show up but they're just "there"--tapping on them has no effect.

This made me realize that before I bought my Sony I had heard people saying one thing they liked about it was the way footnotes were dealt with--but I've never been able to figure out how footnotes work with my Sony.

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can one read too much?

Footnotes (asterisks, numbers, etc.) appear highlighted in gray - a single tap brings one to the note, and tapping on the asterisk/number at the note itself brings the reader back to the text. My current book has been a bit wonky getting back, so I've had to go to OPTIONS --> History a couple of times for that.

I've encountered a couple of books with "dead" footnotes, but wasn't bothered as they were for citations only, not clarifications/explanations.
