I'm really curious now. Why did your folks reject PDFs?

I share your dislike for secondary windows. They clutter up a screen
something awful. And the scripting you need to produce them can get buggy
and unreliable.

I would think that the high priority ISO 9000 puts on controlling documents
would weigh heavily in any decision as to what format you can deliver
documents in. I can understand if your people just don't like PDFs for some
reason, but how does that preference stack up against an auditor's visit?
