My limited experience with Acrobat and related programs is that they make sense
if you want to push printing downstream to the end user. For example, we
explored using Common Ground in a situation where software was site licensed to
corporations. The site license gave the customer the right to reproduce the
technical documentation freely. Putting the doc on CD-ROM with Common Ground
gave those customers the ability to print out what they wanted when they wanted

We choose not to use those programs as the online doc delivery engines because
the online form of the document was awkward. It was sort of like having a slide
projector displaying parts of the paper on screen. Also, to create hypertext
links, etc. meant redoing the documents and, since these were big documents,
that was too costly.
