Can Display Show PDF's, Word Docs?

Just wondering how functional is the MCU display with regards to showing PDF's and like Microsoft Word docs?
For example, can i load some docs on a USB drive and then display them on the screen?

This would be great when i'm waiting in the car for something and can get some work done too.
The MCU must be technically _capable_ of this, because it can display your manual and your manual is a PDF document. However I doubt it's exposed to you because the PDF viewer would be a big attack surface for someone to use to try to hack the MCU. I could be wrong of course, and it might be.

It's probably simpler to try to find a website that will display your documents as images, and use that through the ever-frustrating browser.

Good luck
