Are you not concerned that the heavy costs of pdf files (increased band-
width for transmission and more storage costs) and their not being machine
readable will make .pdf soon obsolete? In the past, .pdf means a pleasant
presentation and some little convenience for larger documents, but today
we need hyperlinked information that is quickly transmitted at low cost,
and is searchable, machine readable, etc. XML (and for format, XSL) pro-
misses that, and this should be the year in which those technologies begin
to take off.
