I like xpdf, but for the reasons expressed by Reinhard Kotucha yesterday (21

Think the programming/delays would not be worth the hassle, but you could use 
something based on:
if you are having difficulties with one particular page, and doing lots of 
trial-and-error cycles, it might be worth just hardcoding something like that 
into the file as a temporary measure?

Sorry just another "inferior substitute" ...
