Wallcraft, thank you for your suggestion. I might act on it soooonish.

You're talking from an iliad point of view I'm guessing? I mean, if I purchased a sony reader, clipped off all the margins&c., then maybe I might get things fit readably? (i'm guessing not).

HAH, actually, I've just remembered that usually when I'm printing out PDFs I do them 2-to a page. So yeah, an A5-sized screen would probably do me just fine. But then, hmm....

This continuous mode is an iLiad specific thing right?

Well, after some thought, it seems that I might have to think about alternatives to sony, and reexamine my bias against the iLiad. Hmmm. Maybe even wait for the next generation.
