Fixed layout epub essentially behaves just like a PDF - or, I should probably say "should" behave...

So on a small device, the page would be small. This would be a stupid choice for most content, but for illustrated books that were designed for print and are essentially pages of "art", it makes some sense.

There has been proposals around PGT both at the IDPF and W3C CCC group (tech for having nice layout, and having that "adapt" intelligently to different screen sizes/resolutions). It looked for a while like that was getting traction, but now I fear the wonks in the CSS working group will drag it around for a few years first. That'd be a bummer if it happens,-- looking that way.
