Acrobat solves a different problem from the one HTML addresses.

Much of traditional publishing suffers from the costs and delays inherent in
the following cycle:

1. Determine the content and decide how it should look on the page.

2. Render it on dead trees.

3. Deliver it to its destination.

Huge benefits accrue to the publisher from swapping steps 2 and 3. It
reduces publication delay and shifts printing costs to the consumer. Acrobat
makes this possible. ...RM
