    What file formats do you use for 'terms of use'? (VB 6)

    I usually include a separate file for "term of use" or a "license agreement".

    I've decided to add a means for the user to display the critter from the installation Form.

    However, using PDF for the critter, I find that displaying via OLE Container is relatively slow.

    I really don't want to have two versions of the critter, i.e., the PDF file and a version internal to the installation program, requiring maintenance of two copies.

    The internal version could then be displayed in a listbox.

    What do you folkes do?

    I don't personally do this, but the software I download seems more and more to use an HTML control for this purpose: it lets them use rich formatting and make the nasty parts really tiny. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Yes, but then I'd have to maintain both a PDF version and an HTML version.

    Seems that you maintain the editable version in whatever format, and then print-to-PDF for other purposes. But suit yourself: if you don't need rich text, a Notepad .txt should suffice.
