No Title Header in 0.4.91?

I always liked the option to show a header, which defaulted to "Title by Autor", which means you can see at a glance what book you currently have without leavin gpage. This seems to have gone on latest release. Can I petition to get it back please! Using Sony 505.

Ahh...I see it is only lost when I convert to epub format. LRF supports it ok.

Is there any advantage to using epub on the Sony 505 instead of LRF when converting? I do like fully justified pages, and it seems epub defaults to no right justification.

No, that's a limitation of the epub rendering software.

will it be possible at some time to include a header in epub (i mean just a simple, invariable "title by author" or similar, on every page) ? i love my page headers... i've just found how to do this in lrf but i don't see how to do it in epub.

The EPUB spec (as far as I know) doesn't have support for header and footers. It needs an Adobe proprietary extension to EPUB to support them. So while it probably will happen eventually, it's not a priority

what about a div with :
Code:
display: oeb-page-head;
would that work ?

i can maybe add that manually, if necessary.

heh, i will... i tried it already in the built-in viewer, it doesn't work there but i'm hoping it will work on the real device. but i don't have a sony (yet) so i can't test it for real. when i test it, if it works, can you add it to calibre ?

You can test it using either Adobe DE or the sony connect software. If it works, it's easy enough to add to calibre.

I'm quite surprised by that, nay shocked (get over it!). Is there really no right justification in EPUB? How strange and disappointing.

i suppose it depends on your perspective : i'd rather not see reflowable texts justified, since you can't manage the tracking and kerning (spaces between words on a line of text, or between letters of a word). justified text done badly is really ugly, full of holes and odd spacing and "rivers". i much prefer left aligned. i do realise i'm in the minority in that view.

I will have to give it a go some time - it is probably one of those things that you can get use to quite easily.
