PDFs - printing from webpage?
Posted on 2003-03-06
I am sure this is a simple question for you guys, but I am new to this and getting conflicting advice from various sources. Can anyone give me some clarity please?
I want to put a 6-page brochure onto my website. Website created with Frontpage (no extns, no frames). I have scanned the pages into Acrobat and saved them as pdfs.
I want people to be able to print off a decent copy and thought if I supplied a link to download Acrobat Reader on the page, they could either save or print the pages they wanted. I originally wanted to create a 'printer friendly' page, but after looking into this, I want the brochure to print out as it appears on the website.
Other people more knowledgeable than me have said I should convert the page to html - can anyone tell me the benefits of this?
Would there be a considerable difference in quality of print out if students printed the pages from their browser, or downloaded Acrobat Reader to print it off (as a pdf)?
Can anyone offer any advice on the best way to put this brochure on a website, so it can be printed off by anyone. The brochure is colour, mainly text, with a few photo images.
I would be grateful for any advice.
