Documents in different formats - why?

We call document formats all file formats that deal with text opposed to video, audio and image files.

TXT files often have text and very little formatting. Doc or RTF files have rich formatting options like bold, italic, different styles and fonts. HTML also contains text but with specific rules optimized for the web. PDF was developed to reliably view, print, and share information on any pc or OS. XLS is a standard for all kinds of tables.

Everything seems to be clear until you encounter the problem of converting one format to another.

Why To Convert DOC To PDF


Wit of the day

Usenet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.
