Hmmm, beta's not showing those options; there's no
Category available. Oh well, it is a beta after all.

Just downloaded the Adobe Acrobat PDF reader for Linux. This
looks interesting. I sniped this out of the readme:

New Features of Acrobat Reader 3.0
Acrobat Reader 3.0 for SunOS, Solaris, HP-UX, and IRIX (jim
adds +Linux) can be used as a plug-in with Netscape 3.0 to
display Adobe PDF files inside the Netscape window. This provides
for seemless viewing of PDF and HTML files while surfing the Web.
This also includes page-on-demand downloading and progressive
rendering of page contents of optimized PDF files, making PDF
files fast and easy to view. Also in this release is a new print
dialog, allowing greater flexibility.

I haven't tried to plug it into 4.0b (or 3.0 for that matter..
maybe after the kids go to bed;-)
