I will do this Joel. For one thing, the pdf has content that should be
available as links, like location, apartment layouts for one and two bedroom
apts. It will be a cheap site, not the cheapest site.

Ah; then ignoring the email I just sent 3 seconds ago, the right thing is to
at the very least, nudge this upwards to a site you *would* put on your
portfolio, if there was a place for it.

Do work you're proud of. If this is a good client, they'll appreciate your
professional nudge toward quality. It can still be cheap. Just not

Little known fact: you can choose "Save as text" or some such from the File
menu, and save the text of the PDF (if it was made from a digital source,
not a scan.) You can do the same with the images. Fairly simple to whip up a
single page of code for the content, and suddenly you're a hero who
delivered quality for economy prices (and if this is a good client, they'll
know better than to expect a cheaper-and-better spiral.)
