No .pdf support that I could see.
PDF definitely works to import books into stanza through the desktop
application. It does tend to make a bit of a mess of the layout though.
Often an unreadable mess even, with no paragraph breaks preserved but
page breaks strewn in right in the middle of lines. Clearly the worst of
all supported formats. Reformatting PDF on such a small screen is
unavoidable, but Stanza isn't good at it.
It fails on line endings - CR vs LF vs CRLF. I did at one point work
out which it likes, but I've forgotten again. If you copy'n'paste the
pdf text into Textwrangler and play with the line endings you can get
a much better result.

Actually, the Singularity seems rather useful in the entire work avoidance
field. "I _could_ write up that report now but if I put it off, I may well
become a weakly godlike entity, at which point not only will I be able to
type faster but my comments will be more on-target." - James Nicoll
