aa> Nearly everybody has a web browser on their computer. That is a
aa> fact.
aa> Few people have Acrobat readers or the browser plug-ins.

these are valid points. But there are others:

- HTML documents often consist of many files.
- HTML documents are open to everyone who cares.
- HTML documents can be changed easily.
- HTML documents look more or less as the author has intended.

- Acrobat documents look (nearly) exactly as the author intended.
- Acrobat documents can be protected against changes.
- Acrobat documents consist of a single (or a few) files.

Every technology has its merits.
