Sample PDFs, all Creative Commons or or other ok-to-distribute files.

They range from simple mainstream novel PDFs to nightmarish magazine formatting. Some have pictures; some have links.
  • ANAT annual report 2008: Colored text, multi-column layout. (CC)
  • James Boyle's The Public Domain: Changes in margins & leading; lists (CC)
  • Helen Keller's essay I Learned to Speak: Non-crucial font & margin changes; should convert well. (PD text)
  • Lenz v Universal: standard legal document layout (PD)
  • Lowry Pei's For Adam: Novel with irregular page breaks & nonstandard headers; should convert well, might be worth noting how the spacing carried over. (CC)
  • TWC-1: Journal; columns with pictures (permission to share)
  • Wick's Houses of the Blooded: RPG game book; nightmarish; not expected to convert well at all. (permission to share)

Metadata's likely all over the place. Some have it; some don't.
