 I am going to have to review one or two books that are likely to be
provided to me in PDF format. I have also spotted the Google Notes
online application on the web but don't know whether it can be used to
create notes on PDFs hosted online as it's difficult to do on a
dial-up connection. Basically, the problem to solve is to create an
application for creating notes/annotations/highlights for "any"
electronic document format.

Thanks again,
