Q. What's the difference between HTML and PDF?
When searching in the databases, you may be given the option of reading a source as an HTML document or as a PDF document.
HTML stands for hypertext markup language. If you choose HTML, you will only see the text of the article.
PDF stands for portable document file. If you choose PDF, you will see the source as it appeared in the original print format including images, tables, graphs, and page numbers.
If given the choice in a database, always view sources in the PDF format.
