    What app would you use for this?

    I have a large Word doc on my desktop that I'd like to convert over to "some" reader on my Treo. I want this file to have hyperlinks so that I can jump to and back to wherever I want (will bookmarks do the same?, other than hyperlinks taking you to a website, I'm not really sure of the difference).

    I have Wordsmith but I'm getting all kinds of <FONT> , and things of similiar nature, I'm sure that it's something I'm doing wrong. Wordsmith did tell me that I can use Bookmarks to create the doc on the desktop and it will convert over to a Wordsmith doc no problem.

    Anyone else know of or using a different reader for such a document?

    Thanks in advance.

    My suggestion would be to strip as much of the Word cruft out of the document as you can, save to HTML, and then use either Demoronizer or Word Unmunger, depending on the version of Word used. Both fix the awful HTML which Word generates. Then convert it to Plucker.

    Is it worth it? Well, download Plucker, install it, and then install some good HTML docs (like Accelerando by Charlie Stross, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow, and the 9-11 Commission Report. The latter is an excellent example of a Palm-optimized HTML hyperlinked document.

    if you have the treo then just use your docs to go application. It handles bookmarks and most of the formating native to word. You may not even need to convert the doc since it reads native formats.
