New ePub Format

I bought an ePub formatted book yesterday from the sony store. This is the first book I purchased in the new format. It looks awful. In fact it is so bad I can hardly read it.

Is there any way to convert this file so it looks like an actual book? What happened to the proper justification and page numbering? I have half of a page on one screen, then half on the next.

What specifically is preventing you from being able to read it?

It doesn't flow like a book anymore. You get half the sentence on one page and half on the next. The books are no longer fully justified.

The Adobe Digital Editions software on the 500/505 does not currently support full justification. That's a shortcoming of the Sony, not of the ePub standard - all other ePub devices support full justification. Given that Sony's newest reader, the PRS-900, does support full justification, there is a reasonable likelihood of a firmware update to address the issue.

I'm not sure what you mean about "half a sentence being on one page and half on another" - can you clarify? The Sony does have widow and orphan control for ePub files, so it won't generally start a sentence on one page if only one line of it will fit on a page.
