Although I've not tried this yet, I would suggest looking at Google
Catalogs for Retailers -
http://www.google.com/catalogs/about/retailers/index.html. They allow you
to upload a PDF of your catalog, annotate and animate, and make it
available via their app.
A high-quality scan to PDF with text conversion, coupled with the Catalogs
gadgetry, might provide a lively online publication.
