About this book


Although the World Wide Web is enjoying enormous growth rates, many Web publishers have discovered that HTML is not up to the requirements of modern corporate communication. For them, Adobe Acrobat offers a wealth of design possibilities. The close integration of Acrobat in the World Wide Web unites the structural advantages of HTML with the comprehensive layout possibilities of Portable Document Format (PDF). On the basis of practical examples and numerous tricks, this book describes how to produce PDF documents efficiently. It also covers the new Acrobat Forms extension which allows JavaScript to be used within PDF and thus opens a whole new range of dynamic applications. Numerous tips on integrating Acrobat into CGI, JavaScript, VBScript, Active Server Pages, search engines, and so on make the book a mine of information for all designers and administrators of Web sites.
