    Restaurant menus - alternatives to PDFs

    Why do SO MANY restaurant websites display their menus as a PDF - is this the best way??? Does anyone have examples of good/better alternatives?

    I think it's ridiculous, for obvious reasons. There is no reason why a restaurant can't design an excellent HTML-driven menu.

    Thanks for the responses. Contemplation of this question is compelling me to write a series of blog entries in relation. I am still discovering, but if anyone is interested and has thoughts to add, ---here is a link---. Strike that, I don't have enough posts to include a link ...but it's on the blog at my website: Internet Endeavor dot com.
