Chapter 15. PDF Files and the Web

Chapter 15. PDF Files and the Web

The World Wide Web has transformed the entire world into an HTML-based society of patiently-waiting-for-connection Internet junkies. It wouldn't be too bad if HTML were compact, flexible, and produced good-looking content, but that's not always the case. Professional Web designers and amateurs alike know that browser differences can distort the most carefully designed page. Add to that situation the unpredictability of Web viewers' monitor settings, and you have a desperate need for a stable, dependable format for documents: PDF.

PDFs are everywhere on the Internet, from eBooks to order forms on retail sites to help files to downloadable tax forms. When the IRS adopts your technology, you know you've really arrived.

This chapter discusses how to use Acrobat and PDF files on the Web, from reading pages online to creating and displaying them on your Web server.
