Well, that is not exactly the point - anybody can use, e.g.,
htmldoc (a very fine tool from, which is not a big
moneydrain as Adobe distiller is).
The point in favor of a semi-official draft copy PDF is that it
gives us a common reference frame for reviews and feedback. The
PDF would mean everybody has the same page and line numbers,
while HTML has no such concept.

Hmmm. It would be pretty easy to cook up a script to number all
the <P> tags and include that number in the HTML as comments or,
even better, anchors so you can directly link to a paragraph). Of
course this makes sense only if it is done consistently, i.e., at
the source. That would certainly be fine with O'Reilly.
