Perhaps you can convert it to WordPerfect 6.0.  It has they ability to do 
hyperlinks within a document or to other documents and many people can 
run it (all you need is a 286).  You could then include any graphics, and 
your formatting would remain intact.  You could write a macro to do the 
conversion (if one doesn't already exist).

Two other possibilities are Adobe Acrobat and the Envoy product.  These, 
I believe, require a little more computing power (like a 386), but I'm 
not sure on that.  The Acrobat viewers are free, and they have them for a 
variety of platforms including many Unix systems.  Production of the 
actual documents requires the purchase of a product, but this might be a 
good alternative (both of these can do hyperlinks).

Good luck.
