Found a strange bug in 2.5.3
Hey just to give you all a heads up, I found a small bug with 2.5.3 that I already reported to amazon about. My email to amazon about it is as follows.
Hello, Just writing in to alert you of a fairly minor but potentially annoying bug with 2.5.3 for Kindle 2 (Global Wireless). Some lines in certain books (example SpellCrash (http://www.amazon.com/spellcrash-kel...ateTag=t0e7-20) get an extended cursor at the beginning of a paragraph in random places. Screenshot included
Book location SpellCrash approx. 1628-41
Heres a screenshot (click image to see it full size)
Its not the highlight but the double height cursor

The extended cursor occurs in response to hyphenated words, or dashes in a sentence. Apparently the cursor interprets a block of text as a single word - the rendering software seems to become "confused" by -, --, etc - and be unable to track where word endings occur.

Tall cursor problem predates 2.5.3
