scribed is cool, but


Scribd has rolled out a very nice

interface to pdf documents. It is neat and slick, but I think what it is

missing is support for getting at data or meta-data in the document. It

would be a great boon to be able to click on a table in a document and have

that tabular data open either in excel or in some online document tool.

Likewise for entities in the document that might have associated metadata.

I'm sure such support is possible and it would turn a nice tool into an

important tool.
