Sample PDF - Could someone try it :)

Hi,

I've attached a sample pdf created from a public domain book. If someone could possibly try loading it onto their reader to see how it reads I would appreciate it.

Some photos of the content being displayed would be wonderful.

This pdf was created page by page from the source material using InDesign. It's a time consuming process but as far as I can tell the only way to have total control over the layout. I'm particulary interested in seing how the reader displays the embedded images. I've tried to stay true to the source material layout (http://www.archive.org/details/alice...wond00carrrich).

I want to start putting together some content while my reader is on order so any comments on the font readability, size, contrast, etc would be nice.

Thanks,

Rob

Rob,

text zoomed to "M" level looks pretty good, but I cannot say the same about illustrations. They look more like negatives. I'll post pics a bit later, unless somebody else does it first.

Thanks for posting the pics Slava - I'm not sure whats happening with the pictures - i'll have to play around once I receive my reader to see what the best settings are.

Once again thanks.
