I'm deconstructing Apple's clock widget so that I can modify it for my own purposes, but why are they using PDFs instead of PNGs for the hands?

Probably because <canvas> is an opening to Quartz, which users a PDF graphics model. (The canvas methods are essentially the Postscript/PDF drawing operators.)

Thanks. Sounds sensible. I'll try replacing them with PNGs sometime to see what happens.
