Chapter 11. PDF and HTML

Chapter 11. PDF and HTML

For the last 2,000 years, paper has been a significant source for collecting and distributing an exponential amount of information. You either produced documents yourself or read others that were distributed using that age-old form. Although paper won’t be disappearing anytime soon, faster and more efficient methods for the distribution of information via the World Wide Web have established themselves firmly in our everyday lives. These methods include Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Portable Document Format (PDF) by Adobe.

The appeal of both HTML and PDF is the ability to distribute information electronically to any computer host, regardless of hardware or software platform. This ability makes that information more accessible than ever before. Information receivers can decide for themselves whether to print that information on paper or not.

FrameMaker provides the ability to take documents that you might have originally planned for print, and convert them to a hypermedia format, such as HTML or PDF.

In this chapter, you learn what FrameMaker tools are available for converting FrameMaker documents to either PDF or HTML. To take advantage of these features, you should already be familiar with Adobe PDF, HTML, CSS, and various graphic formats, such as GIF, JPEG, and PNG.
