PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

HTML Document Format

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It’s an international open standard invented by Tim Berners-Lee, and the main format used for both website pages and formatted emails. HTML describes the structure of a webpage or email, and contains instruction codes for how a user’s browser should display it. These codes include the general layout and which pieces of content are headers, paragraphs of text, links, images, or videos. Internet browsers, like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge, then use this information to display the website content as the editors intended.

You can open an HTML webpage file with your internet browser to preview it, and you can view the full HTML code of a website or HTML file by selecting ‘view source’ from your browser, or by opening the file in a text editor. To create an HTML file, you can use text editors or specific HTML editors. You can also use online tools like Zamzar to create an HTML version of an existing document.
