    You might have problems doing this with PDF. PDF's are good because they're designed to retain their layout. For example they may contain lots of graphical as well as textual elements and so changing font size (as opposed to simply zooming in and out) will throw everything out.

    To be able to change font sizes, etc. you would be better to be working with ePub format documents instead. ePubs allow the easy changing of font size that results in re-flowing around images, etc.

    Cheers,
