I agree and work on tagged PDF tri-fold brochures all the time. If you're
encountering difficulties could it be with the source InDesign documents
and how they are created before exporting to tagged PDF?

Cheers, Karen

> My question is this. Would it be better to link from the brochure
libraries to the appropriate program content in the website rather than
duplicate the text of the brochure as a separate document? In my opinion the
website content is more thorough and much easier to navigate than the text
transcript of the brochure or the PDF would be if it were made accessible.

I'n not sure why you think the PDF wouldn't be easy to navigate. Ensure the
tags meet best-practice standards (include appropriate headings, etc), and
it would be precisely as navigable as HTNL.
