I didn't know about that - very cool.
I have an unusual system though and it's not clear from the page if
this is possible. I use ssh to link to a main computer and then
transmit the PDF to another computer where I display it. So the
question is whether I could transmit the information across too. This
would mean that the instructions to the PDF viewer (skim) would have
to be in a file (preferably as plain text). (I don't like to use X
windows displays as they are too slow.)
