The notion that word processors and PDFs are only for printed
documents seems pretty quaint given how many documents are seldom or
never printed these days. A good word processor should be able to
create a decent PDF and a decent HTML page. PDFs are better than HTML
for offline use since you can just download or e-mail a single file.

Word's not the best choice for anything. There's inevitably something
that doesn't work. I just used it because it was on the computer and
the draft an engineer created was in Word. Should have known better.
