Others

The site may occasionally use other file types, such as Microsoft (MS) Word .doc , MS Word .dot , MS Excel .xls and various image formats, such as .jpg, .png and .gif. While the image formats should work on any modern operating system, the Microsoft files may require proprietary, commercial software. We strive to avoid these file types whenever possible.

Google Chrome

Chrome uses a proprietary, internal method to render PDFs and it appears to struggle at times. We see no problems in any other browser.

You can right-click on any of the PDF links and choose "Save link as..." to download the PDF. Opening the file from the downloads window will use your standard PDF reader.

Alternatively, you can disable Chrome's PDF viewer and avoid all the right-clicking.
  • Open Chrome
  • In the address bar, type "about:plugins" and hit enter
  • Find "Chrome PDF Viewer" and click the "Disable" link
  • Close Chrome and re-open to have Chrome use your computer's default PDF-reading software
