Publish In PDF --
Adobe Acrobat

For those of you who don't have your sense of acronyms balanced yet, PDF stands for Portable Document Format.  Over my personal good wishes, this is a widely used file format originally developed by Adobe. Many books, reports and documents are created in PDF for no better reason than because it works across many platforms.  Technically speaking, if you can print your document on a printer, then the PDF file created from that document can be "read" EXACTLY the way you create it by IBM based computers and by MAC computers.  The Amiga computer can run almost anything anyway so there is no need to mention it.

PDF is great when you WANT your document to look exactly the same, no matter who is looking at it or printing it.  The one real drawback for the budding author wanting to produce his own electronic book is the prohibitive cost usually associated with purchasing from the major supplier.  Today's prices have come DOWN to $179 but that is still high for many struggling authors.

However, there is now a new software application out called Open Office.  By using the EXPORT tool you can export an exact duplicate of your work as a PDF file.  This includes WORKING LINKS.  Best of all, it is FREE.
