Note on printing PDF documents

Some of the documents here are in .PDF format.  If your Adobe acrobat reader is configured as a plug-in (so .pdf documents show up in the browser, not a separate Adobe reader program) then they may not  print (or preview) - all you get is a blank page.  If this is a problem, use the Adobe print button - the small picture of a printer right above the document - and not the browser print command (the one you get to by clicking 'File", then 'Print'.)
