HTML doesn't offer sufficient control over layout. Subsequent to HTML 1.0 a sequence of band-aids (like css) have been designed to address the problem, at the cost of more and more complexity. Often publishers just want to specify the layout, not open it up to complex negotiation with the client.
Silly mistake you made there, IE[3-6] doesn't offer sufficient control over layout.
They could add native PDF support in an update for us Gen 1 owners too, but haven't, so don't hold your breath
People thought they weren't going to add native PDF for the K2 either, and that happened with the new 2.3 release that just came out. I'm not saying it'll happen for the gen1, but people were thinking it wouldn't happen for the k2 either...

"A confusing command
If you allow the manufacturers to pervert stereo views into "3D", what will you call actual 3D when it becomes available?
High-definition 3D, duh.
For what its worth, I did some research and purchased one of these recently. One of the things I heard about these brother printers is that the toner is detected by a light sensor in the toner cartridge. If you cover up the "window" in the toner cartridge after the printer tells you the toner is out, you will actually get to use all of the toner until you start mis-printing. From what I understand you can get hundreds more pages out of a toner cartridge this way.
And currently these are marked down for sub-$100 at amazon.com for anyone who is interested.
The government isn't likely to snap and go postal with me as an innocent bystander.
Oh, how utterly wrong you are. Why not ask the 22-year old man being sent to prison over this? He's an innocent bystander to.
"Matt is pleading guilty on the advice of his public defender in hopes of getting a three and a half year sentence."
In other words, he doesn't have the money to actually fight this.
... where by "he" you mean the PD himself.
Look, public defenders almost *always* encourage their clients to settle, because their compensation structure incentivizes them that way. PDs barely make ends meet, and they get compensated by the number of cases they take on, with very little marginal compensation for taking a case to trial. So they wind up taking on 50, 100 cases at a time. The faster they can get rid of you, the faster they can take on another case.
Notice that the merits of your case didn't appear in the above reasoning chain.
Of course if the client insists on going to trial, the PD is legally obliged to do so--but how many criminal defendants know enough AND have the cojones to argue with their lawyer when their liberty is at stake?
The PD compensation system is b0rkd, and innocent people are in jail because of it.
