Could O'Reilly supply PDF eBooks with zero margins for the Kindle. I have a Kindle DX on order, but from viewing PDFs of O'Reilly ebooks on my Kindle 2, I know the wide margins are a problem. I think the screen on the Kindle DX will be large enough (just barely) for convenient reading of eBooks if the margins are zero width. I realize the problem is really caused by the Kindle not having proper page scaling, but I suspect zero margins are a reasonable fix.

Thanks for the feedback. This is the first time we've heard that request, and we did stop and consider it. As a general approach to our ebook creation, we try not to target a particular reading system or platform, focusing instead on creating the best possible product in accordance with the standards of that format. As such, we partly rely on reading platforms to include basic features that take advantage of the ebook formats, which is missing in this case, unfortunately. Regardless, I can't justify removing the margins on our PDFs because I think most customers would miss them, and also, most other PDF readers include the ability to zoom.
Again, thanks for the feedback, and support.
