John,

  Although Acrobat  6 is not free, all the Adobe Readers are 
free: 
   http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
You can install Adobe Reader 6 with Acrobat 5, if need be. Or, 
in this case, you can open the alternate (larger) PDF that is 
readable with the earlier Readers. (Adobe really is listening to 
those complaints about download time. It's just had to 
address them in a way that is perfectly backwards compatable 
with earlier Readers.)

  This is a 1200 page book, by the way. Just converting it to a 
single HTML file is probably going to produce some 
accessibility problems of its own. 

  The user agent issue is an important one. The working group 
has wrestled with that issue in Guideline 4.2. Perhaps you 
could make some recommendations on how to improve that 
guideline.
