They don't *have* to read it off the screen. I'm using Acrobat (or
will be using it as soon as our web page is up) to let people
download FREE samples of our products. All they have to do is
download and print the sucker. Who's gonna complain that their free
sample (which they won't use on-line anyway) doesn't look good on the
screen? I'm not an Adobe employee or groupie, but come on -- it does
what I need it to do. Don't call it useless because it doesn't do what
it's not supposed to.
