With pdf{e}tex you can make interactive documents. ConTeXt is a nice 
package that allows for easy construction of well-structured interactive 
documents, as well as, standard "screen" documents. Which of the 
*standard* packages do you find not working using pdftex? Maybe we could 
make a list and an available analog for pdftex. Most of the packages 
I've used with latex have worked with pdftex [using ConTeXt].
