Oh, I disagree completely. By formatting your PDFs for the
chunking your information appropriately, by using hypertext
creating specific navigation elements in your PDF, and by
that enhance the doc, such as rollovers and pop-ups, PDF can
be a very usable and useful online format!
In this case, why bother with PDF? why not put the doc in HTML
Perhaps because HTML is more difficult to maintain, it is not self-contained (you must reference graphics, and pages are not connected to other element files), you have issues with formatting that might change at the whim of a browser manufacturer, or viewer.
