200 staffers to convert a document to be readable on-screen? Wow

Dan Bricklin's comments:
The Internet is about more than fast dissemination of information --
it also holds the promise of helping people more effectively navigate
through information to form their own opinions.

The Trellix version has the following benefits:

While reading the report, the reader can refer to footnotes in a
separate window without losing context.

An overview map allows the reader to see the overall structure of the
document to remain oriented and to navigate to specific sections.

The side border allows the reader to easily link to sections and
subsections of the document as needed.

Organizations interested in hosting this version are welcome to do so
free of charge. Contact us (it's about 750 files, totaling about 3MB).
