Pagemaker to HTML

Another option, rather than Pagemaker's cumbersome HTML conversion utility,
is PDF. Pagemaker 6.0 (or later) ships with Adobe Distiller which converts
Pagemaker files (or any Postscript files, I think) rather seemlessly to
Abobe PDF format. PDF transfers over the web quite well, but the end user
must have the freely available Adobe Acrobat viewer to view the PDF files.
