Some of the differences between the PDF and the HTML are:
Under the chapter, there's empty space, because the first heading starts on a
new page; in HTML, the mini-TOC will fill in that space. 

Some graphics imported into the FrameMaker are not completely visible (too
large to fit reasonable on the printed page; in HTML those graphics are shown
in full. The reviewer can't see the whole picture in the PDF.

As for generating output from the HTML: it's possible but time consuming,
unless there are tips/tricks available. Our documents are often several
pages.

One approach we've tried is to create the HTML project and include a link to
the HTML in the PDF review packet, so they can see the forest and the trees.

Just to clarify something....

If all the content is in Frame, I'm not understanding how output from
Frame source to a PDF would differ from output to HTML. Which means, I
think, why can't your SMEs continue to review in Acrobat since it has
much stronger review and comment tools?

Or if there is a difference in output, why not generate PDFs from the
HTML pages?
