I know that. Where did I say it does?

And I didn't say that Acrobat reflows the document; I said HTML browsers
DO, which makes HTML more useful for creating and viewing documents where
content is more important than format.
An inaccurate accusation like claiming that I claimed that Acrobat reflows
the display on magnification changes makes me think you don't read
messages thoroughly enough before replying. In fact, I don't recall
saying anything at all about magnification. :-)

I sent them a few suggestions, yes. The Merlin public beta is due to be
released in April though, and if they follow the same pattern they did for
Warp, they'll still be plenty open to suggestions for the final version,
once the beta is released.
