Math equations

Hey,

Does the PRS 505 display math equations fine?

http://www.math.utah.edu/~davar/PPT/ARCHIVES/ruin.pdf
http://math.berkeley.edu/~evans/SDE.course.pdf

How do they work? If not would the PRS 600 work better?

Spent all morning trying to convert a pdf where the equations just get saved as images- no luck. Any suggestions?

(using linux btw but have a windows virtual machine on hand too

It displays nicely done equations in a .pdf or .epub fine:

The problem arises when one doesn't have access to the source and is displaying a bitmap of a size which doesn't map to the display well and has to use the scaling features.

The .pdfs in question look to be letter-sized and would display well enough in landscape format, half a page at a time, depending on your tolerance for small type at a not very high resolution --- to test this take a screen grab of a page, size it to ~4.875" wide, downsample it to 800 pixels wide, then print that out and see how readable you consider it to be.

Hey,

So I found a guy on the net to do me a few tests with his PRS 300. Seems good enough for me- esp considering the 505/600 is bigger.
