I would appreciate receiving your input on the following question.
We are considering using Adobe Acrobat in future to produce the internet
edition in both Russian and English simultaneously in PDF format and cut
down on the amount of work involved, while making the internet version
identical to the printed copy. The Acrobat reader can be downloaded free of
charge from the Adobe site, and many people will already have it installed.
However it does make more demands on computer power. We do not wish to
restrict access to people who can afford the latest most powerful models.
So, if you have an interest in reading the on line version of this
publication but would find PDF format (Acrobat) difficult to use on your
computer, please let me know.
I would also be interested to know if anyone has experience using Adobe
Acrobat for Russian text.
