I'm confused: are you talking about how it looks printed or on-screen?
Because iff the on-screen appearance is perfect, that's all we're
asking of an on-line doc viewer. Did you mean to talk about printing?

I'm really interested cuz I started to load this yesterday to try it out.

=========================
Merrill Dodge asks for info about Adobe Acrobat.--

I've been using Acrobat for about two years, and have had some success with
it. The disadvantage is primarily that text is often spaced poorly if there
are special attributes in it (underline, bold, etc.) and Acrobat is forced to
print with its universal fonts, as when the font specified in the document is
not native to the system being used to print the file. This does NOT cause
the text to be at all unreadable, but it does impact the appearance to the
point that I wouldn't want to be held responsible for the final output. My
most recent experience with this was the printing of WWW page that was
originally in HTML. All the hypertext links that were underlined in the
original document printed without the preceding space, although the on-screen
appearance was perfect.
