About PDF

PDF (Portable Document Format) is a document standard promoted by Adobe. You need a viewer to see these documents (OK, later versions of Netscape may have a plug-in). You may obtain MS-Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Irix versions etc. from Adobe's site.

If you aren't running one of these systems, there is a free viewer xpdf at www.aimnet.com/~derekn/xpdf/ which will build for many Unix/X11 platforms including Linux and Digital Unix. It is in alpha now (Feb 96) and has various bugs, such as an inability to view inline JPEGs. The NOTMAR stuff seems OK, though.
