Hi All,

I have put up a site for a disabled entrepreneurs group and we have PDFs of 
newsletters on the site. These newsletters are made in two/three column 
styles (otherwise I could make them accessible) and they are impossible to 
follow when converted into HTML by the Adobe conversion tools. Thus I am 
looking at other options now...

I am thinking of putting up either a simple HTML page or a text file as an 
alternative to the PDF.

Any suggestions? Have you seen any sites that do this well?

Thanks for the help
