PDF format - Why do I need it?

PDF - Portable Document Format.


HTML (the code behind Web pages) cannot maintain all the original formatting and presentation of many documents. In such cases, we use a different format: Portable Document Format (PDF).

PDF documents maintain the look of the original document, and they can be viewed on any Macintosh, PC, or Unix computer. First, however, you must download and install the free Reader program if you do not already have one on your computer.
Please use the most current reader from Adobe or Foxit where possible to ensure compatibility with all PDF files on this site. The Adobe Reader is also sometimes referred to as the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Printing Adobe PDF Files

When printing Adobe PDF files from within your web browser, do NOT use the web browser print facility. Instead, use the print button at the left end of the special Adobe Reader tool bar, which appears immediately above the viewing window.
