Concerns have been raised about both the PDF and HTML formats. However,
concerns about the PDF format are not blockers to deployment, whereas
concerns about the HTML format have been.

So far, mikeperry, mcs, brade, and gk have all expressed favorable
opinions about using the PDF format. Ultimately the developers have and
continue to put in the most work to make the Tor Browser what it is, so
I think respecting their vision for the Tor Browser makes sense.

I'm now of the opinion that going with a PDF manual for some or all of
the content presents us with the clearest path forward. I think this
would be some variation of presentation mode 1). Of course this doesn't
mean that we can't host an online version of the manual as well.
