Why Would Anyone Want A Document In Acrobat (Pdf)
Web pages can look slightly different depending on the web browser, the version of the web browser, and the
type of computer. Sometimes documents need to look exactly the same in every instance, by saving documents in Adobe
Acrobat format, the person who creates the file is assured that the file will look exactly the same and print exactly
the same, no matter who reads it or what kind of computer
or printer she uses.
