Using LaTeX to Create Quality PDF Documents on the WWW

Using LaTeX to Create Quality PDF Documents on the WWW

The title of the article---rather long---pretty much tells it all. The initial draft of this paper was written for a colleague who didn't know much about LaTeX and I expanded and polished the article with that same point of view. Neither do I assume the reader knows much about Adobe Acrobat suite of software. The primary emphasis is on how to create pdf documents that are creatures of the internet: interactive, colorful, pleasing to the eye. Most importantly, such documents must be able to be read on a computer screen (for long periods of time). These stated goals are in contrast to simply putting a scientific paper on the web for others to download and print---LaTeX and pdf works very well for that application as well. See below for a discussion on how to prepare scientific papers for the web
