RE: publishing to Palm Pilots

Alex (and all),

I read the following recently when looking for the same thing. I haven't
tried any of these solutions, yet, so if anyone experiments, perhaps they
could publish to the list (and InFrame - excuse my plug).

 Ansyr Technology Corp. (http://www.ansyr.com) is working on Primer,
software that allows Adobe .PDF files
 to be viewed on any Palm-compatible device. The screenshot
(http://www.ansyr.com/screens.html#PALM) on the Ansyr website looks horrible
because it is zoomed out. 

 There is software out currently, such as InstallBuddy
(http://www.backupbuddy.com) , that converts PDF files to
 DOC, but none (that I know of) that allows all formatting to be read.

InFrame Magazine

Subject: publishing to Palm Pilots

One of our SEs has floated the idea of publishing our documentation to
hand held platforms such as the Palm Pilot. This would be in addition
to what we already do (print, PDF and HTML). Has anyone thought about
going down this road? Is there a PDF reader for the Palm OS? How many
MBytes can you stuff into one of these? Is online updating a
possibilty? Why is this better than reading the PDF on the notebook
the SE already has?
BTW, I've been using a Palm Pilot II for about 2 years now and love it
(it's organized my life) but I am understandably skeptical about it as
a publishing medium. Am I behind the times?
Any experience/wisdom/insights would be appreciated.
