thomsalice, welcome to WebmasterWorld.

I've never heard of that term and am unable to find any information on them. Can you provide more details on what they are or what they do?

I've never heard the term either. If it's "pdf gateway", here's a Jakob Nielsen summary from July 2003... [useit.com...]

Spare your users the misery of being dumped into PDF files without warning. Create special gateway pages that summarize the contents of big documents and guide users gently into the PDF morass.

While this was a 2003 article (so many of the bandwidth issues no longer apply and Adobe Reader is much, much faster to load now than it was then), I still hate being taken directly to a pdf file, so the idea is appealing.

I've written forms that use open source PDF classes to generate the PDF from the raw postscript text. Examples can be seen on sites like FPDF:
