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. ~Cecily -----Original Message----- From: Art Campbell [mailto:art.campb...@gmail.com] Sent: Wednesday, April 08, 2009 11:39 AM To: Beierle, Cecily Cc: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: Re: Review Process for documents in HTML? 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? Art Art Campbell art.campbell at gmail.com "...
