Can you provide any error messages?  It's hard to fix a problem
without any diagnostics.

One problem others have had is that the PDF of the XML spec was built
for PDF version 3; if your site (like mine, until recently) still has
a version 2 Acrobat reader as the default, errors do result.  (Since
they have now switched to version 3 and taken version 2 away, however,
I can't reproduce the errors and tell you what the error messages 
were.)

Any help you can give us in tracking down the precise nature of the
problem will help us a lot in fixing it.
