Why can't we just have a browser that "does it all" for us?  Plug-ins can, 
indeed, be a pain. Unfortunately, from what I hear (and I'm no Web expert, so 
feel free to "consider the source"), plug-ins are a fact of life for the Web, 
and the Adobe format is becoming more and more widely used all the time.

The AQD home page has a hotlink to Adobe's Web site, so a person can download 
the Adobe 3.0 PDF reader. If you do not yet have the Adobe reader, this is one 
way to get it.

As for using the reader, some browsers allow one to simply download a .pdf 
file from a Web site for later offline viewing - useful if your system (like 
mine) "bogs down" with both the browser and the reader running. This way, you 
don't *have* to configure your browser to use the reader as a "plug-in."
