In fact, most online journals are in Acrobat PDF format.  And many of
them are not done using TeX, and many of the ones done with TeX
do not use the fonts any of us use (instead using Adobe Math Pi,
MonoType math fonts etc.).  Those not done using TeX don't look
as fine to the trained eye, but they don't seem to care.  Occassionally
it pays to look up from the grind stone and smell the roses :-).
