PDF user guides on the Web?

Janice Malone wondered about the practice of putting PDF
versions of entire user guides on the Web. Janice, you
mentioned 1.5 Meg per guide, and I wouldn't even consider
downloading something that big unless I was truly
desperate. If you can use Acrobat 3.0, you might succeed,
since I understand (after an Adobe presentation) that this
latest version lets users download individual pages rather
than the whole document. I can't provide details, though,
so treat this as informed speculation.
