Description The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format used to present documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems. Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, graphics, and other information needed to display it. The Rich Text Format (often abbreviated RTF) is a proprietary document file format with published specification developed by Microsoft Corporation for cross-platform document interchange with Microsoft products. Most word processors are able to read and write some versions of RTF.
Technical details The PDF combines three technologies: A subset of the PostScript page description programming language, for generating the layout and graphics. A font-embedding/replacement system to allow fonts to travel with the documents. A structured storage system to bundle these elements and any associated content into a single file, with data compression where appropriate. Unlike many word processing formats, RTF code can be human-readable: when an RTF file is viewed as a plain text file, the contained ASCII text is legible. The formatting code is not too distracting nor counter-intuitive, provided that the document's creator kept formatting concise.
