Thanks, Lynn,

This seems like the right direction. I hope to influence a decision toward an HTML version.

Hi Judith,

A neat solution might be to allow users to fill in an HTML form online
and to download the filled form as a Word or PDF document. IMHO it can
be more difficult to make a Word or PDF form accessible, and some
users may not know how to fill it in.

Hope this helps.

Best, Lynn
