As such there is no document explaining the differences between LaTeX (DVI output) and pdfLaTeX (pdf output). My experience is if you use LaTeX or pdfLaTeX the out put will be the same. There will not be any changes.

I want to get assure that when I will compile my document with PDFLaTeX nothing will change in document i mean in terms of pagination each line breaks and pagebreaks will be same as earlier and I have no need to rechek my document.
