just a quick thing about pdf's

If you can convert a pdf to rtf(or start from a rtf) you can change the page setup to 3.54" width and 4.72" height the perfect size for the sony readers. also you will want to change the margin's to either .1 or .2. then you can convert the rtf back to pdf so it can keep all the nice formatting and font size. with this trick pdf's are pretty quick as well. any ways that's what i do to get pdf's to look good, they still don't magnify well the medium size actually gets smaller and then large gets really big, it's weird, but i just make sure the font size is big enough start 11 point font is nice for me and the reader.

What program are you using to convert the files from pdf to rtf or vise versa? Does it have any problems in layout or appearance once the files or books are read? In what device are you actually using to read your ebooks? Thanks!

Rather than converting to strange units with lots of decimals, it's a heck of a lot easier to remember as "90 x 120mm".
