You can create a new PDF that is properly annotated ('here is the small,
relevant section of the original article -- original resides at xx'). Use
Acrobat, if you have it and the source material - or use OOo's pdf facility.

Not an Acrobat user and I don't know whether you can use it to excise the
90% - in any event my idea, above, gives you another way.

I don't think this is possible, but I'll ask anyway ...

One of my colleagues wants to refer to a specific article in a PDF version
of a magazine issue. I have set up a bookmark in the PDF, and can link
directly to the article in question, but want to know if there's any way
to remove the 90% of the PDF that's irrelevant as the entire file is
pretty large...
