Publishing to PDF

HTML-based Web pages are still the most common method of publishing and viewing Web documents. However, other options do exist for getting your documents out to the world. WordPerfect includes two of these: publishing to PDF and using eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and Standard Graphics Markup Language (SGML). Although the XML and SGML languages are quite specialized and beyond the scope of this book, publishing to PDF is becoming increasingly common and can be performed right from within WordPerfect. Adobe’s PDF, or Portable Document Format, is the process by which you create documents that exactly match the original in terms of layout, fonts, and special effects. Readers can view these documents with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, and thus they are not required to have WordPerfect installed on their system.

Note

Adobe Acrobat is a free reader that understands PDF-formatted documents. Many Web sites routinely publish documents in PDF format, and many users already have installed Acrobat. They may see it only as an automatic plug-in to their Web browser, but they can also start the program from the Start, Programs menu. Also, just double-clicking a PDF document in the Windows Explorer automatically starts Acrobat and views the PDF document.
