This brings up a very good point. PDF is a pretty crummy way to
publish electronic documents. It's cumbersome and it doesn't really
DO all that much for all the time and space it occupies.

However, I don't see PDF as an electronic publishing technique. I see
it as a delivery technique. It's quick (remember how long it takes to
deliver actual hard copy?), it's relatively easy for all concerned,
and you can print it on non-Postscript printers.

And I wouldn't worry too much about someone who is pathetic enough to
not only allow some hack columnist to express his or her opinions for
him/her; but to stay anonymous to boot. What a dinkus.

Good luck,
