If this is your main objective I would suggest sticking to HTML. Of
course it depends on the nature of your content. Is it primarily
interactive stuff or more document centric?

If the content is primarily read on the web I would prefer HTML. You
reach the widest range of tools and you don't require users to be
equipped with specific software (PDF and flash readers).
