I'm not sure why you're making it your crusade to keep lecturing people on this topic. As I said in another thread where someone did the same thing about people asking for custom fonts in the Kindle.. people can make an informed choice and be aware of a device's limitations, and still ask for changes. Clearly change is possible, perhaps through firmware or perhaps in a different device. Maybe mobi just cannot deal with page numbers, but it's important for people to make it clear that this is a feature they really want. People thought all the complaints about the no update for Sony PRS-500 fell on deaf ears.. Well, they didn't.

I'm very happy with my choice of device (Sony PRS-505) and I LOVE its page numbers features. But if the hack weren't available to put my own fonts in, I would have had to go with the Cybook because I need to be able to read non-English documents, and I absolutely detest the default font (TNR) rendered on ebook readers. I still hope that Sony will in the future add custom fonts.

So the Cybook Gen3 people want page numbers. Why do you have to keep on repeating in such a patronizing tone that they bought the wrong device? They didn't say they didn't like everything about the Cybook. Clearly the Cybook does certain things better than the Sony. Let them be.

Instead you shhould have boughta Sony Reader PRS-505. It has working page numbers. Now you know Mobipocket has bug(s) with page numbers. So give it a rest. Either you want to stick with your Gen3 and non-working page numbers, or you want to go with Sony for working page numbers. It's that simple.

Quirky little article on percentages.
