Something is wrong with this file - pages dont show up for me.
There's an (iexplorer?) error message, but its in my native 
language, so I can only guess the corresponding english 
translation. Its something like "the user aborted the page 
loading process". Page links are incorrect maybe? I dont use 
iexplorer, sorry. :)

Have you unblocked the file?

chm files can contain ActiveXs, so as security measure since the XP 
security overall you need to explicitly allow chm files that you 
downloaded to be secure.

Check the file properties.

The background of the pages isn't white, but a light green color.

Its maybe nit-picking, but I just find the typography of the 
"Language Reference" on the home page much better.

Made one more big pass through everything and now as far as I can tell 
the generated PDF has no major errors:

Take a look!
