I've often wondered how different things might've been if Tim Berners- 
Lee had started w/ TeXView.app as the basis for his worldwideweb.app  
--- certainly a .dvi format which _did not_ hard code line breaks and  
which would allow information to re-flow and would support hyperlinks  
is an interesting idea --- tagged .pdf has some of that, but I've  
been surprised that there hasn't been some effort in the ebook  
community to create something like to that --- if there has been,  
I've missed it.

(who has finally gotten his pen slate booting from a Compact Flash  
card, and so doesn't have quite the yearning for a Sony PRS-505 ebook  
reader that he had after first playing w/ one in the local Borders)
