This was discussed in the past and the end of it was that most people
prefer the way it is. All the clicking back and forth gets annoying. More
importantly, PS and TXT formats don't support hyperlinks so you have to
scroll a few hundred pages up and down all the time, which is far from
pleasant. And no, I'm not going to maintain different LFS book layouts for
the different formats. Not yet anyway.
