One example of how to do it right is the Supercomuting '96 proceedings
CD (although this conference is co-sponsored by ACM SIGARCH): The
papers are on the CD in HTML format (and pretty clean, too, even
x-mosaic 2.6 can display them) for viewing and in Postscript format
for printing. (The only nit I have to pick is that the
table-of-contents is unusable with x-mosaic 2.6 and emacs-w3 2.2.26).
