Hello Tim,
As a proof of concept, I have produced a PDF version of the Axiom Book
using the hyperref package and pdflatex.
You'll find it at: http://www.linux-france.org/~dmentre/tmp/book.pdf
I had issues with graphics. I have transformed all of them with ps2pdf
and epstopdf but the transformation of bessintr.ps failed (lack of
Bounding Box). Moreover, once included, they have strange behavior (the
graphic is alone on a page). I've not investigated much on this issue.
You'll notice that the PDF version of the book as internal hyperlinks
(see the table of content). The produced file is about 3 MB. It should
be viewable on any platform.
To produce the pdf, I modified book.pamphlet with:
%\usepackage{axiom}
\usepackage{graphicx}
+\usepackage{hyperref}
% struggle with latex figure-floating behavior
And all the lines included the graphics with:
\begin{figure}[htbp]
-\includegraphics[bbllx=14, bblly=14, bburx=176, bbury=186]{ps/P28a.eps}
+\includegraphics[bbllx=14, bblly=14, bburx=176, bbury=186]{pdf/P28a.pdf}
\caption{$J_0(\sqrt{x^2+y^2})$ for $-20 \leq x,y \leq 20$}
I hope it helps,
Yours,
d.
