I have some latex that I've used to generate a number of pdf files (with math content that would be hard to do any other way and that I also don't want to convert).

I was curious if there is a way to instruct pdflatex to not put in new lines at all. ie: no splitting of long lines, to force an infinite width paper size. I'm not sure if this is something that acrobat would be capable of presenting (ie: behave like a browser show things based on the users natural screen width).

If acrobat can't display this, I can still run the latex generated pdf files through a pdf -> html converter. This would avoid the dumb looking layout in a browser of a converted doc since the new line placement is based on what the text looks like on a 8.5x11 paper, which makes no sense in a browser context.
