PDF (Portable Document Format)

PDF is an open standard file format, proprietary to Adobe Systems, for representing two-dimensional documents in a device-independent and resolution-independent format. PDF files encode the exact look of a document in a device-independent way.

PDF (with the output processed by FOP) and PDF2 (using the Idiom plug-in, with the output processed by XEP) are DITA Open Toolkit target outputs.
