Paraphrasing someone else........ I would encourage my competitors to send notifications to their customers in PDF format.

Nice for WHO?  There is absolutely no need to export something as simple 
as a list of circuit IDs as a pdf.  Use plain text.  Ditto for the rest 
of your exported DOCs.

When there are exceptions, when you need to include an image (sparingly, 
not because marketing thought it was a good idea to bling up all your 
emails), or a table, send in HTML with plain text.  Don't make the 
recipient start up another program to open an attachment.
