Formats:

  • Adobe Acrobat 4.0 (*.pdf), efficient format, that can be previewed, printed and edited on PCs and Macs with the Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0/Exchange 4.0. If you configure Netscape properly with its plug-in, you can scroll through the content directly in Netscape. The Reader is freely available to individuals from Adobe Systems in Menlo Park, CA (www.adobe.com). As an alternative you can also use Ghostscript 5.0 to preview the Acrobat Formats (which may be less comfortable).
