JBC file formats?

Ok, seemingly the CHM is not supported in the march update.
I've thoroughly enjoyed the JBC so far, mainly as PDF and epub reader,but after some months playing around with it, I did find out some issues,

One, it does not display all svg images correctly. Sometimes there's something off with the pictures,

two, it does not display certain jpegs correctly, Sometimes the jpegs are not visible until you zoom out or in (as if the JBC never gets to load them)

And lastly I found out it does not display chm files, eventhough many sites say it does!

So I wanted to make a file list of what works,and what does not.

=========================

So far on the march update:

Working in good order:

Epub works, internal hyperlinks supported, pictures supported
PDF works, no hyperlinks supported, pictures supported, no border/margin removal

Working but could be improved (mostly internal hyperlinks):
lit works, very simplistic text zoom in out, pics supported
txt works very simplistic (expected of txt)
mobi works very simplistic, pics supported
rtf works
HTML works basically, no hyperlinks supported, pictures supported

Should be working, but does not work:
chm does NOT work
zip archives do NOT work
rar archives do NOT work
DOC Ms Office DOC files do NOT work

Are not working (company never meant FW to read these files):
7zarchives don't work
CBR comic books don't work
CBZ comic books don't work
HLP MSDOS Help files don't work
DOCX MS Office 200x files (or any other office file including excel, PowerPoint, etc...) don't work
ODP ODT ODSAny open-office document including open office's power point
DJVU Does not work

============================

if anything else please post and i'll test it out...(If I have the time)

Can add that DJVU does not work but was not meant to.

CBZ and zip archives should work imho, because they use almost the same protocol as epub (zipped archive),so the device should be able to open them without extra license fees or so...
