Converting Engineering Books

I am trying to convert several math and physics books from PDF to epub. While I am pleased the the conversion process now correctly justifies text without weird wrapping and now includes images, there are problems with math symbols and physics equations appearing correctly in the conversion.

Is there a way I can add a font or something so the that the technical information isn't hashed?

Tweak EPUB (T within the library) and then hand code/add the changes, then rebuild (button)

ok, I see how that works After doing more research, I see that PDF is not the preferred input format. All my input files are PDF and tweaking hundreds of files is not practical. Unfortunately, I will have to read them on my computer instead of Nook …*until better PDF support becomes available.

If I'm missing something and there is another option, please pass it along.

Thanks!!
