    Help!

    I have been trying to download the Adobe Reader.

    Here is the web page I am trying to download from:

    http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

    However, something seems to be wrong with this web page on my computer. It
    looks like this web page is too large for my computer screen.

    When I scroll down, the last bit of information that I see is where it says:

    "Connection Speed."

    This is after I type in the "Language" and the "Platform."

    I am unable to scroll down further past this point. Therefore, I am unable to
    type in my Connection Speed.

    Therefore, I am unable to finish filling out this form so I can download Adobe
    Reader.

    I've tried everything I can think of, moving this window up, down, left, right,
    every which way, but I can't get it to scroll down any lower.

    I do a lot of web surfing, and I can't recall ever encountering this problem
    before.

    I get the feeling there's something stupid I am either doing or not doing.

    Any assistance would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It *IS* a goofy page. I get small type with rows overlapping. I am
    using Netscape 7.1.

    If you are using netscape 4.x, it's time to upgrade. Lots of people no
    longer support it.

    Ah hah!

    When I came back to this newsgroup and tried the link contained within my
    message, the page came out normal and fine.

    I was able to complete all of the desired information. The Adobe Reader is
    now downloading at this very instant.

    Apparently, the link that said "Get Adobe Reader Now" from the web site I got
    it from was fouled up.

    But when I accessed the link from the message I posted, it came out fine.

    I'm curious. Why does this happen?
    support it.<<

    Thanks for the information and tip.

    Magic!

    If you really want to test your browser, go to USA web pages presented
    by Japanese car manufacturers.
