  • I tend to send PDFs to people, instead. It's rare that I need someone to edit a document I'm working on...

      I do the same thing.

      If they want to edit something, I can send them the sources (either XML or LaTeX) that originated the docs. Or they can buy a PDF writer (I rarely protect PDF documents).

      PDF has solved the layout problem and the tools problem, with a very small size. I was going to send PostScripts, but them I'd have to explain how to install GhostScript on machines that didn't have it, then how to start it, and I still had to worry with the size of the file.

      PDF. That's it.
