Originally, the reader was unable to interpret carriage returns in .htm files; this caused words to run together when displayed on the screen. A firmware update is made available through the Elonex support page that fixes this issue. Another firmware update was due to be made available in the first week of February 2010 "to address some minor unresolved issues and also add additional note taking functionality to the 511EB."
