Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 Guide
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a universal file type for making paper documents available over the Web. It can also be used to convert other types of files to PDF format so they can be opened without the software originally used to create them. PDF files can be opened and printed by anyone with the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on their computer, regardless of platform. (The reader can be downloaded for free from Adobe.com.)
