About pdf format

In many cases PDF (portable document format) files of AGI documents are available as an alternative to HTML. These files generally print out better than HTML because they are formatted for a sheet of standard letter size paper.

Viewing pdf files requires that one have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on their computer. Most computers and popular browsers have Acrobat Reader preinstalled. If by chance you do not have it, it can be downloaded from Adobe for free.

Note that PDF files generally take longer to load into a browser than a typical HTML file. You may see a blank screen while the document loads. Your browser preferences can be set to determine whether Acrobat opens the pdf file in your browser or saves it to your desktop.
