Adobe Systems, Incorporated designed a special file format called PDF that is readable on the Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Many electronic books (often called eBooks) conform to the PDF format so that Web users can download such books and read them online, save them to their computers for a later reading, or print them on their printers. The problem with the typical file format, such as Microsoft Word's DOC file format, is that Web browsers cannot read these files and they are not supportable on some of the major computing platforms in use today (although usually a plug-in utility program is available for most computers that do allow non-Windows users to read PC-based DOC files).
