Hrm... I'll look around for emulators, but the output will defenetly have to be tested on a real device. For example, the Reader emulator that comes with the Sony eBook Library software does a very good job at emulating, but I only found a good font size after several tries on the real device... If I now load a LRF in the emulator, it does display as it should, but the fonts look a lot larger on the screen than on the device.

One of the goals of the project though is consistency and I'll defenetly check out existing libraries and emulators for other formats. I think I could initially approximate the difference in font size by the difference in resolution and actual screen size...

In any case, I still have quite a bit of tweaking left to do...
