Documents in PDF Format

The text of this web site is also provided in pdf format for easy off-line reading and reference. You can download it separately from the sidebar button “Docs in PDF” or as part of xmltr suite archive from the “QuickStart” page.

The pdf document was produced from the same xml source files which generated this web site. They were translated using xmltr into markup for a print-formatting system (PageMaker), printed to PostScript and then distilled into pdf.
