Melanie,

While your question focuses on PDFs, the same requirement exists for web
documents: i.e. they need to be "well-formed" as well. A very good article
that explains this concept may be found at A List Apart:
http://www.alistapart.com/articles/grokwebstandards

While it speaks of "web standards", the section about "Think Like a Writer"
pretty much sums it up.
