I noticed in the release notes that Apple has added hyphenation to iBooks:
* iBooks now fits more words per page by automatically hyphenating text, available only on iOS 4.2 or later.
Which seems like kind of an odd way to present it, but there it is.
Now if I could only get H&J on my Kindle v1.
I'm a graphic design student researching justified text, and wondered if anybody knew of some examples of brilliant (or terrible!) justified text? Previous forums have discussed whether it's a good idea or not, but I'm really looking for real examples of successful justification (possibly including pre-computers and pre-type, as one forum entry mentioned manuscripts written by monks). If anybody could recommend some books too, that'd be great.
Just got an iPad at work. Is there anything with a better composition engine than the native books app on the horizon? It's hurting my soul trying to reconcile the dumb css-style full justification with any conception of this thing as a book killer.
