Looking for Electronic Publishing Formats... - An article written in April 1993 about the current state of electronic documents. At that time I was the forum leader for BikeNet on America Online. The web and HTML had recently been invented but I did not learn about them until the fall of 1993. The web and HTML really didn't become well known until 1994 and 1995. I rediscovered this article on the web in December 2000 while at Adobe on the Acrobat team. I made some interesting comments in 1993 about Acrobat (which I had just seen in 1993). Strange I should stumble across this article again after starting to work on Acrobat. I continue to be very aware of the permanence (and fragility) of electronic documents. I currently (as of December 2000) believe that ASCII text, JPEG, HTML, and PDF will be enduring formats.
