In a closely related event, today we are demonstrating search and retrieval
of Adobe Acrobat files via the Web at Adobe's roll-out of Acrobat 2.0
(which has our engine built into it). We're showing that with a browser
and our Web server (an unannounced product), you can search Acrobat
documents, then spawn the Acrobat viewer for the returned pages. This
wouldn't be very interesting, I suppose, except that the same searches can
include other kinds of documents on distributed servers, too.

So, one could use the Acrobat Distiller, as I think it's called, to convert
HTML pages to Acrobat, which is more or less display PostScript...
