Wikipedia defines a "Portable Document Format" or "PDF" as a computer file format created by Adobe Systems in 1993 for document exchange. PDFs represent documents in a manner independent of the application software, hardware, and operating system. Each PDF file contains a complete description of a fixed-layout 2-D document that includes the text, fonts, images, and vector graphics which comprise the document. PDF is an open standard that was officially published on July 1, 2008 by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization or Organisation internationale de normalisation) as ISO 32000-1:2008. Just as a "text" file (made up of the ASCII character set) can be opened by any computer no matter what word processor it uses, so "PDF" files can be opened by any computer, whether it runs Microsoft Windows, Macintosh OS, UNIX or Linux. You need software such as Adobe Reader or equivalent to open and print a PDF. ===================================================== MAKING A PRINTED NEWSLETTER AND A WEB PAGE NEWSLETTER In producing our newsletter and in maintaining my web pages, I use a text editor to edit ASCII text files and a page layout program to format the articles and photos that make up the newsletter. Then I save the finished newsletter as a PDF. I send the PDF to our print shop for copying and put the PDF on my web page for viewing. The web pages are set up and maintained by editing text files that contain the HTML (HyperText Markup Language) commands that make the text and images appear the way they do. Our newsletters (and many from other CORSA chapters) are made of PDFs that you can download and look at on your computer monitor or print on your printer. If you are interested in the actual HTML code that makes up a web page, you can sometimes see it by selecting "View Source" in your web browser. In theory, every web page written in correct HTML language should look the same whether you are using Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox or another browser on your computer to view the web page. In practice, you will find that many authors of web pages, for various reasons, use non-standard HTML commands. Many web pages are extremely complex. I have tried to keep my web pages simple. A simple structure is easier for you to view and easier for me to maintain. For more, look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Document_Format Tell me if you have problems opening these files.
