Thanks Harry. For the record, I currently read Mobi-format files on my Nokia N73, and have used them in the past in a variety of Palm and WinCE devices. (I've only used non-DRM Mobi files thus far.) I have no qualms with the quality of the Mobi books I've read thus far.

That said, it's important for me to be able to produce my own books, and the tools available for the LRF format seem much better. I also dislike the fact that Mobipocket assumes everyone uses Windows. IMO this is as big a gaffe as offering a US-only book store. (Not that Sony is any better in this regard, but there are alternatives available for the Sony.)
