How To Write on PDF Online?
Easy-to-use PDF software
With the widespread adoption of LaTeX, Markdown, etc., why do standards bodies continue to write in plain text? Would is not be easier and more aesthetically pleasing to use a PDF, Markdown, etc?
I've worked on several non-IT based technology standards and t are generally authored in MS Word and exported to PDF. I have seen people authoring in Latex and HTML but frankly when you are editing / authoring you may have dozens of different people authoring, and sometimes you are editing live in the meeting WYSIWYG is important so you don't debate the formatting. ASCII / Plaintext is fine enough sometimes but it has its limitations. If you can't illustrate elegantly, easily make/track references and make good tables, then things get complicated and you find yourself limited by your tools. I recall that +5 years ago we spent time complaining about Word, but these days hardly at all.
Write on PDF: All You Need to Know
So it is up to you to decide what your needs are, but in my experience most people that are authoring these days, and I certainly know this myself, want to write in HTML which is a good trade off at this point in history. So don't be afraid of choosing HTML, because if you want to write a book — there is no better way. I am sorry if this has been offensive, I don't mean to offend anyone, this is just my point. You can email me at and my email is — I'm pretty damn busy as it is. I'll try to respond when I can, but as this is an email list, it is good to think things over before being rash. And since this is an open list, I have some leeway in terms of what I will allow, or not allow for. That.
