It depends on what you mean by inline. It can web-preview PDF files. 
The key example is the file

<html><head><meta http-equiv="Refresh" 

which previews the PDF file /tmp/test.pdf.  You can be more tricky 
and modify this example to have commands output PDF through the 
'output is HTML' command; an example is the PDF LaTeX in the LaTeX 

I think Allan may eventually make TM open PDF directly as it's pretty 
much there if you have the Schubert PDF Browser Plugin.

What are apple's PDF Replacement Services? I know about the PDF 
Services discussed at <http://www.apple.com/applescript/print/>. If 
you describe what you want to happen, maybe we can collectively 
figure out how to do it.

This little editor is full of surprises!
