Adobe's Acrobat -- providing the missing link?
Brailsford, David F. (1994) Adobe's Acrobat -- providing the missing link? Proceedings of the Second Annual Conference, Internet World and Document Delivery . pp. 71-78.
Adobe's Acrobat software, released in June 1993, is based around a new Portable Document Format (PDF) which offers the possibility of being able to view and exchange electronic documents, independent of the originating software, across a wide variety of supported hardware platforms (PC, Macintosh, Sun UNIX etc.). The fact that the imageable objects are rendered with full use of Level 2 PostScript means that the most demanding requirements can be met in terms of high-quality typography, device-independent colour and full page fidelity with respect to the printed version.
