Not sure if what we do will meet your needs, but we provide a number of
Word documents that we compress into ZIP executables that users can
download and print. It works in our situation because everyone has Word
and can read online or print, as each person prefers. ZIPping also
allows you to create an archive of related documents that can be
downloaded in one pass.

If you don't want to do PDF for some reason, ZIP is an inexpensive
alternative. (The usual disclaimers apply, including the sad fact that
I make nothing out of my recommendation. However, donations are always welcome.<g>)
