    I've used the link below from my Dell at work and had no problems.

    Today, two sick kids, I work from home and need to access this Government Regulation. It won't display on Preview. I've tried with both Safari and FoxFire. I don't know if I'm missing a font on my Mac (OSX 10.3.3) or if the problem is something else.

    If any one can advise me I would appreciate it.

    It downloads from this site: http://web2.gov.mb.ca/laws/regs/pdf/w040-222.06.pdf

    It displays fine on 10.4.8 (Intel).

    Have you considered patching from 10.3.3 to 10.3.9 (or whatever the last one was), there were probably some updates to the pdf handling along the way.

    Me too. I can vouch for the Schubert-It plugin as well as Preview.

    Actually, my Finder is 10.3.3, my system is 10.3.9. Sorry about that.

    Weird, when I open the document I see boxes and strange letters basic jibbererous, but when I try to cut and paste it here, that content it shows up fine.
