PDF (Standard)

A de facto standard for portable documents, which is owned by Adobe Inc.

JavaScript is used inside Acrobat 4.0 as a forms-handling language. This provides a scripting environment in which you can manipulate the form data whose layout is defined by PostScript but whose content can then be 'activated' by JavaScript. There are a few minor limitations imposed due to the fact that Acrobat is not a web browser. There are also several additional objects provided to support the PDF forms environment.
