A PDF can be read without any reference to a browser. I wouldn't
call it a "Web product." Some governments require certain documents
to be readable by the visually impaired with a screen reader.

While Scribus is not designed to be an HTML creator or editor, it
certainly offers options for reading PDFs in a browser. Given the
legal requirements for some documents, I think Peter raised an
important issue.
