Don't companies tend to support their own formats and products better than
anyone else's? So MS Word supports Word and RTF fully, but doesn't really
support Acrobat PDF anywhere like as well as Adobe Framemaker supports
Acrobat PDF. Framemaker (in theory and usually in practice) converts all
document links to PDF, and all contents and index information to PDF
bookmarks and hyperlinks. On the other hand, Framemaker doesn't support
Word and RTF as well as MS does...
And when it comes to "Open Standards", everyone supports them, but not as
well as their own standards.
If you're doing really big documents and have settled on PDF for
distribution, you ought to start looking at programs like Framemaker. But
if you rely on using products from different companies, I think you're
always going to be caught in the middle.
