An alternative solution would be a Kindle DX w/ its much larger screen.

Glad to hear it.

Arguably there needs to be some formal research into this (and that, something more than making bitmap images of pages) --- in particular we need a tool which will make equations into .svg images, adding the sort of baseline information which LaTeXiT adds when making an in-place equation, then get those placed into an ePub.

How ePub got approved w/o support for MathML I'll never understand.
