Creation and Management of eBooks

My ongoing effort to bring selected literature (some proceedings with maths symbols in it) on my new Sony PRS-505 eBook Reader identified some issues i would like to address here. First i realized that any text or pdf is hard to read on the reader without a specific conversion to the resolution of the specific ebook. Especially the page breaks and line breaks can be annoying if they do not match the readers resolution. I found an excellent software (Calibre eBook Management) that solves this issue for me. Calibre also allows to download RSS feeds from newspapers in order to generate a structured file that can be read on eBooks.
However Calibre is not able to solve another issue i identified while experimenting with my eBook device. It is not possible to display maths symbols within the texts on the eBook reader, which is a major problem for people that are reading technical papers!
