Topic: Writing in a pdf-Document? (Via Email)

I'm a graphic Designer, fairly new to Acrobat. I've been doing a
magazine for years together with a journalist, with me doing the final
layouts (dummy text, pictures, dummy captions, etc.), then mailing the
compressed pages to the journalist who replaced the dummy text, writing
the story to the exact length needed, and then returning the finished
document to me. A very comfortable way of working; we both worked with
Quark Express on Macs.
Since I'm going to redesign the magazine I would like to do it in my
new InDesign CS and use the easy-to-perform pdf-functions there,
especially since I also have to generate an online-version of the
magazine. The problem however: How can the journalist write the
complete story (not just edit or correct small passages) without owning
InDesign? I cannot expect him to buy this new program, nor learn it,
since he is extremely busy.
Is there a way for him to write the story in Acrobat? He would not want
to change the lay-out, but simply replace the texts. I own Acrobat 6.02
Professional and would install whatever is needed (Reader, Standard or
Pro) on the Mac of my collegue.
Thanks for any suggestion.
