Our technical writing department was asked by the higher powers
of the company :) to change our online manuals from PDF to HTML.
As we do not agree with this change, we are trying to gather
information on user preferences and usability of PDF vs HTML. Does
anyone know any studies or articles on this subject that could
help us justify our disapproval?
