.PDF is the Portable Document Format file type - those created by (and readable by) Acrobat.  (like .doc is Wordperfect and .xls is Excel)

The "advantage" is that a "web" page can be generated by any application (acrobat writer works as a printer extension) and the file retains all the original fonts and formatting - much more extensive than HTML.

The disadvantage is that it's not really a Web page - it's an external file type that's viewed by a helper application, even if the browser is that helper, and the resolution on the type leaves much to be desired.
