Why use Acrobat?

Adobe Acrobat is a convenient and compact way of providing documents across the internet and the reader program needed to view and print documents is available free of charge.

Acrobat has the advantage of displaying and printing both mono and colour output in almost identical form irrespective of the type of computer and printer you use. Acrobat document files usually end with .pdf, denoting Portable Document Format.

To make use of the Acrobat files that are included on these web pages, you will need to have the free Acrobat Reader installed on your computer.
