WHAT: “Adobe Acrobat allows you to create and store documents online in PDF format. This allows them to be printed in the future by anyone who accesses the page. The advantage to this is that, unlike HTML, the look of the document will not change once it is printed. This is a convenient way to provide forms for your customers to access and complete, or to allow them to print information that they may need in the future.”
