iOS 5 "reader" trigger?

Hello... I like the Reader function but I find the reader function only available in certain pages and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to me...

Can you tell me what triggers the "reader" option within ios5 safari ?

Sharp D64u 42" & 46" , PS3 , Toshiba Qosmio G40, Yamaha 6130B, Energy Take Classic

I don't think we know.

From what I have read, it depends on how the web page is coded and what CSS tags are used to style the content. If the content has a <div> tag with a header tag and is at least several thousand characters then there is a good chance the reader rectangle will show up.
