FWIW, I've tested the Adobe Acrobat 4.05 "Web capture" facility which worked beautifully on any Web site that did NOT used css (cascading style sheets). It captured a css site okay but lost any formatting defined by the style sheet. (In some cases, of course, that wouldn't matter, but in others it definitely does.) I haven't taken the time to find out if I've missed a vital setting, or if there's a fix.

So I'm interested in the alternatives that others are mentioning in response to Joyce's request.

2. Can anyone recommend a good book to help me get started with Acrobat 4?
I'll go check the archives and the Amazon reviews, but a current
recommendation from a Whirler would be valuable. (Please copy me directly,

I liked Adobe's "Classroom in a Book" for Acrobat 3, and (although I haven't used it) I expect that the updated copy for Acrobat 4 would be just as good.
