Humm... I've got the free version of iSilo, but hadn't considered using it
for clippings.  I agree that AvantGo is a bit large, but then again it's
also a web browser, which I need for surfing wirelessly.

The killer app that I'm looking for is some kind of printer driver that will
convert what I print into something readable on my PalmOS system.  If it
exists, and it may very well, I haven't found it yet.
