Years ago under plain old dos, I had a small app. that created a .com file from a textfile. A user ran the .com file and had a small text viewer.
Now I want the same thing for either a Worddocument or an image. Each second month I have to spread a newsletter by e-mail, complete with formatting. I dislike sending a worddocument itself, so I need an alternative. PDF is nice, however I'm not gonna ask my (mostly home)users to download a 5 MB viewer only for this newsletter. So I'm looking for something else, preferrably in a way receivers don't need an extra viewer.
Anyone knows of such a thing? (Of course, KB size also needs to stay reasonable, for must users still use modems).
