How does Hanlin/Bebook handle epub ?

I know the hanlin is great with fb2 but how does it handle epub ?

What I am particularly interested in is if I generate e-newspapers using Kovid's excellent calibre software into epub format how will they appear on the hanlin/bebook ? Eg will they reflow correctly.

I would really like to read extracts from the New York Times, Guardian and Economist on the Hanlin using Calibre and would appreciate any views from anyone who has tried doing this.

Thanks

I've tried, but so far, I haven't gotten it to work. Kovid's Calibre epub newspapers look PERFECT on my Sony, but my BeBook seems to be having problems with them. Basically they seem be blank and only two pages when I try opening them on my BeBook.

Some old epub files that I made from an earlier version of Calibre (sorry, not sure what version) open up, but they don't have any photos, so not sure if photos are the cause of the failure or the cause of the success.

I'll keep trying though...

The epub file can not be open correctly unless embedded fonts.
All the epub file make for Sony PRS505 only two page, one is the cover page,and other is blank,because it define the font name inside epub file .
