Only partly true I think. It depends how the PDF is formed. If you have
created a PDF using PDF publishing tools like Adobe, or Word (eg printing to
a PDF printer), then it will scale as you say. However if you have done a
screen capture and what you are seeing is graphics within the PDF, then
these won't scale any better than any other graphic.
