Exactly. One reason we academics tend to favor LaTeX and Postscript is that these were the first useful formats for digital communication of paper - they really helped spread information widely (witness The problem is of course that all the new users want everything in PDF instead, but we have better things to do than converting file formats. Of course we *should* do it, but it is hard to get the time and interest.

Another possibility is latex2html, of course.
