PDF (Portable Document Format) is a file format with the same file extension to identify it. PDFs are used for online copies of print documentation.

It should be noted that PDFs should only be used for documents that are intended to be printed out before being read. Many documents are published on the web in pdf form instead of html. HTML is usually better, since users don't have to load a separate pdf reader in addition to their web browser. HTML also can be searched much easier then PDFs, and html can be scrolled through easier. In case of doubt, use html.
