My company makes a lot of forms for people to use in Excel and word. These are programs are not really the best for creating a form. I want to switch them all over to either Adobe Publisher forms or InfoPath Forms. Which is better?

Which will allow me to create Email forms? and is best suited for it?

Which is best suited for printable forms?

Which is best suited for typable forms?

Off the cuff I would go info path. Just because it MS products tend to integrate best with other MS products. But I can't really claim to have researched all the pros and cons for both products. But a few things to consider:
How do you intend to deploy your forms?
What email client do you use?
What webserver(s) do you use?
Database (got to store that data somewhere)?
Server OS?
Current Office version?

Another thing to thing about is that Windows Sharepoint services is free (read bundled) with Windows Server and you can get a lot of milage out it with no hit to the budget (other than people hours).
