Typical arxiv papers in PDF look great on Iliad if you zoom in to the text area (cropping the margins/running headers/footers). We are talking about effective 7.5pts font then.

Alternatively, if you rotate to landscape and enable continuous mode, it looks just the same as if you took it printed out on A4 or letter and taped into a continuous scroll, sliding through it with a half-page-height window.

Simple addition of a \usepackage{geometry} with the appropriate paper size arguments to your TeX source does the trick, nothing torturous (unless the original document uses various packages you don't have -- but I presume you have no problems reprocessing the document from TeX for printing).

Ergonomics and UI intuitiveness of iliad are terrific already at this stage, and responsiveness improves with the ongoing upgrades.
