If I have a choice between HTML and PDF, I always take PDF, and unless I
know before I click that the PDF is a single page, I always download the whole
PDF to read it locally. Reading multipage docs online is a pain, regardless of
what format they're in. And I have broadband at home.

If I'm browsing from work, I'll pull the PDF because I can save it, print it
(optionally), and read it later (i.e., on my own time).

If I'm browsing from home, I still often prefer the PDF becasue I really
hate to wait for all the graphics, banners, buttons, ads, etc., on each page
of the article to download via my dial-up line.

Very seldom do I click-through to the end.
