Hi, can anyone give me advice on generating a screen-optimized PDF of 
an article?

I would like to be able to produce versions of articles that are easier 
to read on screen.

pdfscreen seems like it is almost what I want, but it has a lot of 
features I don't want - I'm not interested in a control panel, 
background colors, or any other presentation features.

I want to be able to use the article source without modifying it, and 
get a PDF that won't require scrolling vertically on a wide-screen 

Ideally, it'd display 3 columns for each page, and have each page be in 
portrait orientation with an aspect ratio that'll fit nicely on a 
a 4:3 aspect ratio is probably best, although if I could get that and 
13:9 also, that'd be great.

Any advice would be appreciated - thanks!
