Question Certain format options not displayed...

I got my Sony 505 a few weeks back and can't believe I got along without it. I've already loaded almost 50 of my favorite books and have an eye on more.

I recently downloaded Caliber and have been using it to convert txt files to LRF format. Generally, it's works quite well.

Yesterday, I added some Center, Underline, Bold, Italics and Page Break tags to a txt file and used Caliber to convert the file. When I viewed the completed file in Caliber it looked great.

The lines were centered, the text was underlined, the italics were displayed and the pages broke where specified. Great!

I loaded the file to my 505 and found that the page break function worked fine but the underline text were not underlined, the centered text was not centered and the italics were not italic.

Since everything displayed properly on Caliber I didn't expect any problems.

So, where did I go wrong? Are the noted tags not supported in Sony LRF display?

Thanks for any insights!
