We are starting to use Adobe Acrobat for this.
What I particularly like is that their reader is
freely distributable and available for Mac,
Windows, DOS and UNIX, which allows us a great
deal of flexibility (I do not know the other
packages you have mentioned, so I cannot

So far I have been quite impressed with what I
have been able to use, and it's ease of use.
(Make a PostScript file of your doc, put it
through the Acrobat distiller, out comes your
electronic doc. Then you can add various bells
and whistles to it, make it non-printing,
password protect it, etc., etc.).

Please note: I say this only because I like and
use the product: I have no other affiliation
with Adobe.

want to share them, that's fine. If they don't,
that's fine, too.
