PDF Submissions

The PDF file is intended for printing the UDHR on paper, and for viewing for those translations that are not easily viewable in HTML. Thus, the PDF file should be simple and not contain a lot of extraneous formatting. All special fonts should be embedded in the PDF file. When in doubt check on another machine that does not have the special fonts installed.
