PDF spec
There's quite a bit of work left to do, but the PDF spec already has 386 
pages of goodness and starts to look seriously cool. Take a peek!

(still subject to http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=9369, so 
don't mind the absent underscores here and there)

Awesome progress!

I think pdf allows for clickable links. Do you think those would be a good idea? 
I did make them work in the ebook version.

Yes, it does, and I even think I use it in a few places. But I haven't 
pursued links systematically yet.

It does have links, in the table of contents. But they don't work. The 
external links seems to work.

I know that this is that standard layout/theme of Latex but I don't 
understand why links need to looks so horrible. A red or cyan square 
around the text.

Just my 2c:
The - in windows\bin resident - d.chm is very good for using as a 
reference, because you have a linked TOC, text and keyword search 
and bookmarks capability all the time on the left.

IMHO the pdf format is more suited for printing or maybe reading 
on ebook readers, but it would be definitely userfriendlier to 
have the TOC links on the bookmarks tab in Acrobat Reader. :)

Printing would be indeed the main target of the PDF.
