Subject: [wsia] pdf?

Is there some specific reason why no one is posting their scenarios 
in pdf? I don't really care myself, but I thought it was agreed upon 
as the format of choice for these works.

However, I am noticing some rather annoying Word artifacts. Is there 
some reason why Word is not creating generic, uncluttered html? I 
write mine from scratch, and convert everything to ascii text first, 
and as far as that is concerned, since I don't think John writes html 
as such, or Xhtml, it really would be better all around, especially 
for inclusion on our website, if these scenarios, and later, the use 
cases to be in pdf, especially if they are UML and done in some 
program other than Rational Rose. Getting a publishable version may 
involve jumping through some hoops, in which case I would rather just 
volunteer to convert it than have it come up floopy on the web. Rose 
can output web pages or Word compatible versions of its diagrams, and 
for the sake of round tripping our work straight into code, it would 
be preferable.


P.S. Hearing no dissent, I have passed the presentation along to the 
architecture folks at the Web 3D Consortium. We are waiting for a 
penultimate version of the X3D spec for approval before harvesting 
requirements from this arena.
