Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox, July 28, 2003:
Gateway Pages Prevent PDF Shock
Spare your users the misery of being dumped into PDF
files without warning. Create special gateway pages
that summarize the contents of big documents and guide
users gently into the PDF morass.


Yes, gateway pages make sense. But he still misses the
mark regarding many aspects of PDF, and still loves
using creative vocabulary.

Dunno... I'm inclined to add an 'e' and a space to
"morass" to describe the Alertbox... but why stoop to
the same level?
