Re: Acrobat Reader
I've been finding that alot of academic pdf files won't open in the latest
version of Adobe Reader, whatever that is - it says it's version 9. It
claims they're corrupt. Problem happens only slightly less often since I
upgraded to the new version.
When I had a trial version of Nitro's pdf software I never had this problem,
and it was also easier to navigate.

A couple of comments on the Reader thread.
Yes, it is possible to choose the level of a created PDF, but many people
just use the default.
Until quite recently, I never had a problem opening PDFs with Acrobat 5
(just the message warnignof possible loss of features). These days I
often come across PDFs that Acrobat 5 reckons are broken and unreadable,
so I suspect the culprit is probably Acrobat 9 (possibly also 8).
I have yet to find a "broken" PDF that Foxit Reader has a problem with,
so I would endorse a previous recommendation to use this, as it is also
faster and less bloated than current versions of Acrobat Reader.
