Important Technical Note

It has recently come to our attention that changes made by Microsoft in Internet Explorer 10 and 11 have made it difficult if not impossible to view .pdf files on the web using that browser. Below are a couple of different alternatives to deal with this problem created by Microsoft.

1. Download the document to your computer and then use Adobe Reader to view it and print it. The Adobe Reader is a free download from Adobe and can be found at this web site.

2. Switch to Google Chrome web browser. This web browser is free and still works fine with .pdf files. You can obtain it at this web site.

3. Access this web site and view documents from your smart phone or tablet, most of which seem to have no issues with the .pdf format.

4. Go to the tools menu icon on the Internet Explorer tool bar and select the option of compatibility mode. Turn on compatibility mode for this website and things will return to normal and you will be able to access .pdf files on the web with Internet Explorer. 

We are sorry that this problem exists but the .pdf format is the most universal format existing today in the internet world and it is unfortunate that Microsoft has chosen in their latest releases to make it awkward for their customers to access this format.
