I need to agree with Sean's assessment that it is "utter poppycock".

After some practice (and reading this list) I now make very legible online
PDF files. However, it takes more than just clicking a button and saving my
paper-based doc as a PDF. Almost every element of your document will affect
the quality of your online PDF - graphic quality/process and resolution,
typeface, margins/page layout, color, whether or not the moon is in the
house of Aquarius, amount of content (or size of "chunking"), position of
graphics, blah, blah, blah. It's not hard, but it does consume some time.

Since a screen is a different size and shape than a piece of paper
(usually), then how the information will appear must adapt. There's a lot of
tweaking to move print info onlne. It's all worth it, though, when you see
the result.

If you need to constantly create online PDF files, you may want to see if
your company will cough up the funds to properly implement a single-source
solution. Otherwise, you'll have to do it manually - but the results (and
the happiness of your end users) justify the small effort.
