Thanks for the suggestion, I suppose I should have thought of trying other apps.
I just installed and tried Bluefire, however any letter with a stress mark is displayed as a box (Screenshot).

Loaded it into Stanza and it works fine - instant page turns, no hesitating, all letters displayed.
It looks like it has to do with iBooks; Bluefire simply lacks the proper font, or whatever it needs, stanza is fine, and iBooks? I don't know.

Only problem is that I love the annotation support in iBooks, makes it easy to highlight an interesting sentence. At least I can read it now in Stanza, albeit with bad annotating; thanks!
Still curious as to why iBooks has problems with it.
