It was suggested we distribute Release Notes in HTML rather than PDF,
What are the advantages/disadvantages of HTML vs PDF.
Issues that occur to me are that a PDF is easier to print.
Maybe the way HTML appears is browser dependant.
Am I correct in thinking that if I have FrameMaker, there should be no problem creating both anyway?
