Why the Adobe Portable Document Format?
The Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) allows us to offer easy to read documents that preserve the formatting, fine detail and images of the original documents, with a compact file size for faster downloading. The Adobe Reader application provides many features such as zoom in/out, copy/paste of text or images, etc. It also lets us produce forms that you can print, which look exactly like the original because the PDF file includes the fonts that your computer may not have.
