Steven, The pdfs are selected pages from printed brochures that elaborate on the web site information. They are not a substitute for the html, rather a "lagniappe." I'm inferring from your "Er, okay" that operator manuals as pdfs aren't a good idea? Is there a better format for printed material? Sorry if this is a dumb question...

Info in a web site should be HTML. At least, have an HTML version of what's in the PDF files. Operator manual in PDF? Er, okay. Product literature in PDF? Why? Seems like a really bad idea, but what is your reasoning? I hope it's not: "saves time to just dump the data into a PDF, and let the customers look at that". -- Steven Streight aka Vaspers the Grate Web Usability. Blog Revolution.
