>As an Acrobat file, it was more reasonable: 850 KB

850Kb is still 'huge' (well, big) if you have to download via the net, which
is what the discussion was about. Consider how large that would be as a HTML
document, with some GIFs or JPGs. Nowhere near 850K I'll wager.

I'll agree with the original poster; acrobat really pisses me off in
relation to the web, it is not a structured document format like HTML which
allows dynamic formatting of the page *at the viewers end* to suit the
viewers particular circumstance. Rather its a page display program, or to to
use the term, a 'remote page printing' product (only if you have a
postscript printer).
