Planning Smooth Transitions to PDF and HTML

When you begin a FrameMaker project, you should address the resulting media format possibilities and build these into your plan. Although you can use any FrameMaker document to create PDF and HTML documents, converting documents that map well to either format gives you more options. Understanding the limitations and issues associated with each of these media formats will provide a good base on which to build FrameMaker documents for easy conversion. This section explores each media format and how FrameMaker document formats relate to each media format.

Adobe PDF

Adobe PDF is a universal file format that can be shared across different computer platforms. PDF maintains the formatting information of the source document. In other words, a PDF file will look exactly the way you intended it to with regard to the page layout and formatting information of the source document. To view PDF files, end users must have either Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader on their computers. PDF files can be viewed page by page in a Web browser or downloaded and viewed independently.
