Adding to this; I extracted the pdf and moved it to my home directory so
that I: 1) know where it is, and 2) can use Acrobe Reader (yes I know
there are others, but for such a large document I thought it easier to
use AR) to view the pdf file.

Very nice document, but I found that the document contains no bookmarks
so that you can easily move to a subject section. So, I cheated and
opened Win2KPro in VirtualBox, opened the html files in Acrobat (the
licenced PDF editor) and created a rutebook PDF with bookmarks. This
makes it so much easier for finding and going to subject chapters.

My question: does anyone know how to do the above (use the html files
and create a pdf with bookmarks from the internal urls) using a OS linux
program? If so can you post how to do this? Asking because most won't
have access to a $$-paidfor Acrobat program, and I'd like to wean myself
from Acrobat anyway. Note: I am talking about _Acrobat_ (versions 4 &
6), _not_ Adobe Reader (linux 8.1) which is the pdf reader program.
