We used to convert our documents to both HTML and PDF for our
intranet...HTML gave us the ability to use a search engine with our large
document collection, and PDF looked pretty when you printed it (and could be
downloaded for e-mailing to customers, etc.).

However, we have since switched to a product called J-Docs from Net-It...I
now convert all my released documents to PDF (which I had to do before for
online reviews, anyway) and place them into a specified directory. The
software polls the directory every x minutes and pulls new and updated
material from it. It is automatically converted to J-Doc format, which can
be read be all with the free reader...AND the entire document collection can
be searched with a search engine. Our corporate intranet is structured by
department, so based on the directory tree I create and manage in my
specified directory, I can control how the output is organized on our
intranet site.

Our MIS group just implemented the product a few months ago, but we love it!
There are a few glitches we're working out, but it has served us well thus
