Hi all:

We are looking for ways to present project documentation on an intranet. I've been looking at .pdf files using the Adobe reader within a Netscape browser. I like the presentation, that is, the WYSIWYG format and the clickable contents frame on the side. However, the text in the documents is difficult to read because here and there the lines are corrupted. Have other people using .pdf in a browser run into the same problem?

From the amount of mail traffic regarding PDF I've seen on this list, I'm assuming that some of you out there have a lot of experience with it. Are there other ways to implement it?

What other ways are there to present significant amounts of information on an intranet website besides HTML and PDF?

Thank you in advance,
