PDF dictionary lookup

How (well) does the dictionary lookup functionality work in PDF documents? I am asking about both bought PDF docs, like tech books, and custom-made PDFs made by myself.

Does it use the same Mobipocket dictionary as the Mobipocket reader app? I assume so, but you never know

I have used the publicly available dictionaries such as word net and the 1913 version of the Webster dictionary with no problems looking up words in a PDF file. I bought the latest version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary and it also works well. Load the 25 MB file takes a little time initially, but after that, it is pretty fast.
