This is certainly the best thing you can do.  But be aware that not
all PDF viewers support everything.  If in doubt, use Adobe Reader.

pdftex produces valid PDF, at least.  This is all it can do.  Many PDF
viewers only support a subset of the PDF (ISO 32000) standard.

I say this because Steve tested different viewers.  This shouldn't be
necessary because if a particular viewer doesn't support hyperlinks,
for example, then neither pdftex nor dvips can provide a workaround.
They both just produce valid PDF and that's all they can do.  It's
suffficient to use Adobe Reader for testing.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
