Except by Adobe, of course, who could throw us the same sort of curve ball that
MS has thrown at WinHelp. "Well, we know you all have 1 billion dollars
invested in your current Acrobat content, but we've decided to do things
completely differently starting next year."
My biggest problem with Acrobat-style solutions is that they are fixed page
images. And one of the really powerful possibilities that I'm starting to play
around with is dynamically composed content. HTML generated on the fly out of a
database of possible contents and a profile of the user. Fixed binary images of
pages can never deliver that kind of power.
