Last week’s issue was the first to be made available in the Adobe PDF format. The full contents of the weekly newspaper can be read on a computer screen or printed out.
The Tradewinds PDF is free. By contrast, the Virgin Islands Daily News sells digital versions of its issues for as much as a dollar each.
Last week, when the Tradewinds released its first PDF issue, an online announcement indicated that stories from the paper would no longer be available on the newspaper’s Web site. That statement has been removed.
UPDATE: Wednesday morning, at about 9:45 EDT, the PDF feature was not working.
