Readers, this article is in "PDF" format and you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0+ installed to download and read the article. If you don't have Acrobat Reader 4.0+ installed, it's available free for download at http://www.adobe.com/acrobat   (version 3.0 or less will not work properly)

Some of the many advantages of the PDF format is it contains all of the article's intended formatting allowing proper printing of the article as seen on the screen. Further, it has the fonts embedded into the article, especially important when using a character set that may not be on the reader's computer, such as the Greek symbols used for equations. So, the reader can save and print the PDF article totally intact exactly as it was originally intended.

Other important features are, with Acrobat Reader, the reader can magnify (zoom in or out) the article to many different levels so that those superscripts or subscripts can be seen with total clarity. And if the reader wants to, the article can be rotated making it easy to view diagrams from different angles! The only main disadvantage that come to mind is that downloading and viewing may take a little longer, and has been the primary reason for using HTML for the articles exclusively heretofore. However, with Internet connection speeds increasing, the downloading is becoming less of a problem and certainly now the advantages outweigh this one factor.

Remember, you must have Acrobat Reader 4.0+ installed - Earlier versions will not view properly! To check for the version, launch Acrobat Reader, open "Help" and then look at "About" to see your version.
