If I may modify the original question a bit: I create all books myself (right from buying the paper book to scan it). Once done, I store them in HTML format. For the purpose of reading them on my Sony Reader, I wrote a series of utilities (which mostly use Calibre to do the dirty job) to convert them. It makes little difference for me whether I convert to LRF or to EPUB.

In this situation, and with today's hardware (I use PRS-505) - does EPUB have any distinct advantage over LRF?

I mean, I chose LRF months ago because the reader rendered it a lot faster than PDF or RTF, because it had perfect support for UTF-8 (I use Eastern European charset) etc. Should I switch to EPUB now, what kind of advantages can I expect from it?
