Question Equations in PDFs

The Amazon conversion service works surprisingly well for PDFs. I have two big complaints (which I told them about), but maybe you guys can fix this sooner than they can:

1. Equations in my PDFs (scientific papers) are almost always unreadable gibberish. Missing fonts for special symbols, I would guess.

2. I can't zoom in on figures, to see details, like axis labels on graphs. If the figure was a full letter-size page as a PDF, it becomes a full screen, with microscopic text.

Any ideas how to get around these or improve the readability of scientific/technical literature on PDFs?
