Thank you for the input. I tried various things over the weekend. xpdf 
baulks, the CUPS lpr baulks - it was interesting to discover that lpr does 
actually know about pdf files and just prints them.

I wanted the pdf so I could produce some written documentation (I am that 
old fashioned). Doing that with HTML is more difficult.

I suspect that the pdf files are indeed broken in some way. Can anybody 
else read them?

The postscript download did not produce a text file at all - it is binary 
of some sort.
