Thanks, Scott, but certainly not for me.
To convert a perfectly useful and readable "Word" file into an unmanageable
and difficult to read (or print) graphics file seems like a truly bizarre
You can't adjust the font or columns to fit your screen, and 99% of video
fonts are pretty garbled in .pdf files, anyway.
At work, I finally have had to join my colleagues and just print out any
Adobe file I have to read, even though it costs the company paper. It is
still way cheaper than trying to slide it back and forth with the little
hand. No scroll bars, awkward and unmanageable zoom function (readable
letters *always* run off the screen) and there are no decent scroll bars.
Ever try to copy and paste a URL or address out of a .pdf file? Change to a
more readable font?
Please just send me the Word file (as .RTF, if encoded binary attachments
are not possible). That way I can read it on my screen, quickly and easily,
and can actually use it.
Alternatively, post it as an html to a web page. I was surprised that Barry
found the formatting problem from Word to HTML. I've never had that, so it
may just be a MAC or Word version problem, IDK.

interested. Otherwise, I'll just reply to private inquiries as they arrive.
