the speed with which you could get things published on the web. It's an
option that is available to you. I'll be happy to describe it further if
people have questions.
Thanks Al, for suggesting Acrobat Reader (PDF format). That was a good
suggestion and a new one I hadn't thought of!
There are programs that do export in PDF format, such as PageMaker...so
that is a real option. On the Macintosh, I have received around 5 copies of
the Acrobat Reader just by purchasing other software by Adobe. I think
Adobe includes it with most of their software packages.
We cannot export to PDF format from our SignWriter computer program, but we
could paste the SignWriting into a program like PageMaker and then export
I will look into creating "an Acrobat Reader" article on our SignWriting
Web Site, to find out if there is interest - I will also find out if it is
harder or easier to design - if it is easier it may well be a solution!
