    No. The PDF format is too complicated for the DS to read, or so I am told

    yeah pdf takes too much cpu, ds would only be able to be programmed to read some of them..not really worth the time to program.

    or will the Picto DS app not do text?

    I found a convertor to convert each to a PNG, then feed it into the imgview program by matey who did Moonshell, and voila!
