In contrast to fully-formatted PDF versions, they are usually very basic in that decorative graphical sub-chapter separators (is there a name for those often floral thingies that are sometimes used?) are usually not present, and neither are maps (if you're into the fantasy genre) or other illustrations. There are exceptions to this rule, though. ePUB and MobiPocket (with subsequent conversion to ePUB via, e.g., Calibre) are still the better choices for the Nook (and most other readers excluding the iPad) due to common limitations with respect to their PDF capabilities.
Some shops let you download/provide you with samples (Amazon being one of them, besides B&N) which will allow you to see a portion of the actual document before you buy it.

Well, it's good to hear the EPUBs from stores are better formatted.
I am, indeed, a fan of Fantasy. I suppose the lack of maps is a minor disappointment, but not a big deal. Unlike a lot of Fantasy readers, I've never really cared for the maps. I suppose they're nice to have, but I don't think I'd really miss them.
Thanks for your response, curio. I appreciate it.
