the pdf file was corrupt for me. Most of the texts was just blocks. I could view the pictures and what I mad up out of it was that it's all fairly basic.

Yes It is corrupt for me as well. All the text characters were either N or a box. The pictures show up fine on mine but I can't read anything. Very peculiar.

It renders beautifully for me with Acrobat Reader 7. Dunno what to tell you two.

Yeah, sometimes I get a PDF that Preview will render text as blocks and Acrobat Reader will be just fine with. Is this some text encoding issue?

It stinks.

Not sure. And my built in Acrobat Reader 5 won't even show anything for it. I tried getting Reader 7 but, running their download manager, it said the file was corrupt. I don't know where this file is, but I can't get the manager to download another.

It would appear that whatever problem it was is fixed with Tiger's PDF engine. w00t! Even my old IA32 assembly notes work!
