re. Tex and vs. pdf, etc.: All the documents on my web site are rooted in
Tex. This allows instant conversion to dvi, ps, pdf, txt, etc., and as
Ingmar points out, portability is just about perfect, including equations
and figures (in ps or Tex). I cannot be alone in being driven near-crazy
by files in idiosyncratic formats. I would like to see Tex become the
standard for this paperless, on-line future. Nothing else makes sense to
me. Chrs, //SCB
