Google Docs includes Google Docs, Spreadsheets & presentations. They have some features in common and other features that are unique to each file type.

Sharing – allows you the option to share or publish the doc in multiple formats including:

When you publish, you put the file online where people can view it (but not edit it).

Email as attachment with several choices (.doc, .pdf, .rtf, .odt)

Please note, at this time you can only share PDFs from the Docs list, not the PDF itself. Sharing PDFs with mailing lists is not available at this time. Publishing a PDF so that anyone can view has not yet been implemented.
