Subject: PDF and Online Doc Query
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
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,
