Q. What is Adobe Acrobat Reader® and why do I need it to view various documents on this website?
A. Several documents on this website are in Portable Document Format – otherwise known as PDF. These files contain complex documents with graphs, images, and special text that cannot be presented easily through a regular Web browser such as Internet Explorer® or FireFox®. This format also allows you greater flexibility when printing.
The software for viewing these documents is available as a free download from the Adobe Systems website at http://get.adobe.com/reader/ (link opens in new window) . Installation instructions are also available there.
