Being a TeX-nician for years, I pretty well know how to

create pleasant pdfs. Yet, both pdf and html have different

usages. For example, how could you make a wiki-like

site - where everybody can edit, correct and extend the

context - using pdf-only solution? It won't work! Pdf

is an output format, not well suited for editing.

The current trends are quite opposite to what you suggest.

We like to be able to produce from *one* source multiple

documents: for print, for a beamer, for a screen; using

ps and pdf and html and possibly some other formats, too.
