The file looks fine to me. Nice work, BTW.

It must be a problem with the downloading process, not the file

just uploaded my first PDF file...see the DOWNLOAD NOW link on the page

however, after downloading OK it then gives the error:

"File does not begin with %PDF"

and then doesn't display the file in Acrobat Reader.

is there something wrong with the file?

is it meant to be uploaded in Binary or something?

please advise!
