Actually, if it's a ``Tagged'' pdf it can know this sort of thing ---  
unfortunately there aren't many apps which make such, and pdftex is  
not one of those.

The OP might want to check and see if there're programs adapted from  
pdf ``readers'' (actually converters) for handheld platforms  
available --- these will work well w/ such ``tagged'' pdfs, and  
possibly better w/ normal ones.

Alternately, perhaps a feature request for xpdf?
