Source for Osborne documentation?

I would be happy to scan the Osborne docs and make them available on the web
(and return them promptly!). The only question is, what format should they
be in? ASCII seems to be the logical choice, but of course you loose all
the diagrams. PDF would be nice (and make the scanning much easier), but
how portable is PDF? Also, file sizes tend to get big with PDFs.
Suggestions on the format?
