Which means you're going to be using a lot of adhesive tape.

I'm more concerned with the readability - bright, thin paper doesn't cut it.
It glares and has read-through. I fault many of today's publishing companies
when it comes to paper quality - I gladly pay more for good quality paper,
since it's readable in varying light conditions without eyestrain.

One nit - the PDF file isn't resolution independent - it has to be created
at a particular resolution. It can be downsampled (with resulting artifacts)
to lower resolutions.

I guess I'm a lot pickier at printing quality than the average person - I
find 1200 DPI only marginally acceptable for text or music.

I've never seen anything electronic yet that has anything close to the
usability and portability (not to mention the ease of reading) of paper and
high-quality printing - and I'm in the computer business.
