    Question e-reader

    Any chance you could publish fcm in a e-reader friendly way?

    Best I can suggest is to use Calibre and convert the PDF :/

    Most e-readers should accept .pdf files without issue. I've converted some .pdf files to .epub for my nook, and find the .pdf is better, especially if there are non-western fonts involved. The .pdf will display everything fine, but the conversion tries to replicate the text with its own fonts, which doesn't always work well.

    Reading pdf's on a kindle is not that great; I'll see if calibre produces a useful mobi file

    I have found that converting the PDF to epub and then epub to mobi the best quality. Good luck on this.
