Question Greek language compatibility

Hello to everyone! This is a new member trying to be like you (that is, PRS-505 owner hehe).

I have this question... In case I buy a 505 from a site (still not affordable in Greece) will I be able to read greek books; If yes which of the formats are compatible; PDF, TXT etx...

Probably PDF is compatible in any language around the world right;

Thank you so much and I am waiting your responses!!!

The best format is ePub. With ePub, you can easily embed a Greek font for use with Greek eBooks.

See this thread, where HarryT uploaded some Homer in Ionic Greek:

Book Designer will allow Greek characters to display on the Sony LRF format with no real difficulty.

Not back and I want something easier (new greek with only one type of accent) so that must be pretty simple. I ll download book designer also.

BTW, I have the eeepc 4g also. Its great :-)
