What in God's name would inspire somebody to take something that was in an open, non-proprietary, easily-archived, easily-searched, easily-indexed format that could be viewed by any common web browser and put it in a format that is none of those things?

I would have put references to the URL on my web sites had the content been re-posted in HTML or text. Enough people do that and the key words in it would have caused it to eventually bubble to the top of Google and other search engine pages.

Too bad.
