Yesterday, David and I were discussing why so many forms are published as PDFs rather than web pages, and the difficulty in fixing this for both the huge number of existing forms as well as all the new ones.

Today, the Ministry of Justice published a very good blog on how they have begun to address this issue. Since this is just one small government department, it gives you an idea of the scale of the issue across the whole of the public sector.
