Apple II "Bible" -- "'What's Where in the Apple" as Adobe PDF with searchable Atlas and Gazetteer tables and reformatted Guide.
As publisher of the long "out-of-print" "What's Where in the Apple" -- the Bible for the Apple II -- I want to make it available as an Adobe PDF file. It would be simple to scan images of "What's Where in the Apple" and publish them as an ePub, however, that would be "bogus" for several reasons:
1. Scanning provides poor quality images lacking the clarity of a presentation that uses optimized computer display fonts and can be "tuned" to any computer display format or orientation that looks good on your computer or tablet screen.
2. The 150 page Guide, 60 page Atlas and 40 page Gazetteer will be converted into Adobe PDF -- a better format and works on all computers and tablets. Screens may be enlarged or reduced and there is no limit to the amount of space as there was in the printed editions.
3. The 5000 or so lines of the Atlas and Gazetteer sections -- the real "backbone" of eWWA -- will be "searchable" making it easy to find what you need. Scanned images cannot be searched.
4. The resulting eWWA version will be an important tool for anyone interested in the Apple II and will greatly improve their understanding and capabilities.
