books from sony store not changing font size on prs-900
I buy most of my books from the sony bookstore, the prices are reasonable and the collection is growing, however of the last 6 books i bought, 5 of them don't allow for changing fontsize on my reader, if i select a larger size, only the chapter name changes size and not the content. i reported this to sony, finally got a nice lady on the phone who gave me kind of gift code for a new book, but not a replaced book nor a message when the formatting is repaired. the end result, i don't have the book i wanted and i can't redownload the book because the library software tells me i have it already, has anyone the same experience or a possible solution

I did run into your situation with my 505 by specifying in the css file a fixed (pixel) font size for all fonts. It caused the font to stay a fixed size even if I switched to medium or large. I'm curious if the producers of the book thought that was the way to go not realizing that it would screw up the end user.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I had this problem with a book purchased in January. I called Sony and they assured me it would be corrected. What they didn't explain was that it had to be corrected by the publisher. I found that out after I called a second time about a month later. The book I bought WAS corrected but it took about 2 months. I kept checking my account and re-downloading that book and finally got the corrected copy. I never got the email informing me that the corrected book was available. Thankfully, I had other books to read while I waited for this one.
I hope it works out for you!
