    A gentleman from Adobe asked me if PDF exhibited the same problems. So I
    need to clarify my question...

    It is not simply about how can I distribute consistently diplayed
    documents (yes PDF will solve that), but how do I distribute EDITABLE
    documents that are consistently displayed?
