That reinforces what that the librarians have told johnnyboy. They show the Kindle as being incompatible. As in "tested and found wanting" rather than "We haven't looked at it yet".

I wonder if the "PDF eBook" they refer to is different from standard PDF in some way.

You can send PDFs to older Kindles via a conversion process and read them directly (I think) on the current generation (Kindle 3).
